Pulse counting analog circuit?

Hi Guys,

I am trying to figure out what the best way to build an analog pulse reading circuit would be? I have a sensor that puts out pulses with respect to how much fluid is running through the sensor, and the greater the fluid, the more pulses it sends out. I know I can do this via a data aquisition proram easily, but want to do this with analog circuits? My group and I were thinking of making an integrator circuit and depending on the slope of the response, we could figure out a way to find out how many pulses were sent out by the sensor.

Any help in the right direction would be appreciated! :)
