No, Lily's endo gave it to me. He has always had equipment on hand to 
do the tests himself in his own office. He seems to have pretty 
cutting edge stuff, so I would guess it is for the more recent 
standard. About 6 mo to a year ago, he bought 'new' equipment again 
to replace a box that was about a meter long by 60x60 cm. The new one 
is only 1/3 that size. Both did hbA1c, the old one in 10 - 15 
minutes, the new one much faster. Don't know the method.
