blood colour analyser 

LABORATORY MEDICINE

A self-explanatory term for an obsolete device used to assess the colour of blood, a manoeuvre of dubious value.

I’ve been in lab medicine since 1981 and not seen one in use. A modern translation of this device might be spectrophotometry of serum…to quantify haemolysis.
