I'll be happy to share it with you.  Your admonitions in the previous
e-mail are appropriate.  The urine analyzer does not communicate in HL7.
I do have a bunch of code that is an HL7 parser for communication with
Quest diagnostics.  

The analyzer has both a usb and serial port that communicates with a
printer with a simple ASCII data stream, no formatting.  It should be a
simple task to catch the data and send it to our record.   

I was not able to make Tony Lawrence's script to work on Fedora for some
reason, but it worked fine with Centos.  I wanted to use Centos anyway,
so I have to do some moving of hardware etc to get things ready to test.

I'll keep you informed.

Thanks for your interest.
