    Would the new medical electronic curcuits be condsidered counting and
    timing machines.Converting a chemical to a number, Comparison of
    signals.

    Can you give a real example of the instrument for which you have the question? There certainly are counting and timing instruments used in medicine.

    No machine of which I am aware can convert a chemical to a number -- one is a substance; the other is abstract. On the other hand, if you are referring to quantifying various chemicals in the body, that has been done for a very long time, even in the pre-electronics age.

    One of them is ph meter,it measure hydrogen ion concentration in a liquid by generating a voltage directly proportional to the pH solution.

    For research only,I ask a medical examier If he made a test on a body
    for a reason that don't appy here.His answer heart failure in most cases
    be cause alot of test have to go research labs that take to much time
    and the expense is to great for a natural dead,thus most death certificates
    say heart failure.If you have a disease,they wait until your heart stops.
    My op was to find out how advanced the medical test could be done now.
    I think the answer is research hold the key for years to come.Bertus,
    does your company design new machines or build by request with plans.

    I thought you were talking about "new" techniques. That was done in the early 1970's. Except, we didn't have TOF. We used a primitive, double-focusing MS about the size of a small house. ;)

    That just doesn't make sense. Please edit it, if you want a rational response. As for death certificates, I have seen quite a few, and I cannot agree with your assertion -- at least as I understand what you are saying.

    There are numerous tests for heart failure or more correctly, impending heart failure. Some of the most interesting measure biochemical markers of the relative relative anoxia that occurs in various tissues.
