Haven't seen an answer yet so ...
A similar query appeared here a few months back, from the MS-DOS
arena; one suggestion was to use the Kermit terminal emulator to receive
data from a microplate reader.
In Kermit for DOS, you would use 'log session filename' for raw
ascii capture, ensuring that 'set flow-control' and/or 'set handshake'
are appropriate for the sending device (the plate reader).
I presume Kermit for Mac has identical or analogous commands.
Hope this helps,
