Does anyone recognise these DEC cartridges?:

Any details or knowledge of what systems they may have been used with?
They're definitely digital, note the logo on the nearer one on the right.
I can't recall ever having seen them. They're associated in this instance with 80s-era biomed analysis.

Also, anyone know what processor may have been used in a Becton Dickinson ARTIFACS 440 cell-sorting (FACS) rack?
We're speculating there may be an embedded LSI-11.

Rob and I are assessing some surplus/scrap equipment for rescue but haven't been on site yet.
