SEL invests in testing

Seaward Electronics Limited is investing over £700,000 to develop the next generation of technology for servicing and checking medical testing equipment


Seaward Electronics Limited (SEL), based at Peterlee, County Durham, is investing over £700,000 to develop the next generation of technology for servicing and checking medical testing equipment.


RDA One NorthEast is contributing a £200,000 research and development grant to help SEL develop the technology, which it says could play a major part in increasing healthcare efficiency, reducing costs and significantly improving patient care.


SEL recently launched the Rigel 288, the world’s first fully automatic hand-held electrical safety analyser, which it claims can radically improving testing performance in the medical devices sector.


Seaward Electronics managing director, Rod Taylor, said: ‘The new instrument will build upon the experiences gained by the Rigel 288 and will use new technologies currently under development to make testing of these important medical machines easier, quicker and more reliable.’
