A quick look at the manual:
suggests that the instrument supports a RS 232 interface to communicate with the computer. It also seems to have specific commands that are documented in the manual. You should be able to communicate with it using the serial port functionality in MATLAB.

thanks Chirag, I am using a serial port. however, would I need to create a driver or can I find some where to download one?

You should be able to talk to the device using the serial port. The post here should serve as a good starting point.
To use just a serial port using the specific commands found in the manual, you do not need to create a driver.
Here's an example that shows how to perform query based serial communication. Feel free to edit the example to fit your needs.
All the best
