Description
A hemoglobinometer measures the amount of hemoglobin in blood. This example is based on the design of the Viennese physiologist and physician, Ernst von Fleischl-Marxow (also known as Ernst Fleischl von Marxow) (1846-1891). The “C. REICHERT / WIEN” inscription on the inside lid of the box is that of an important optical company in Vienna.
