February 7, 2014

Bodkin Design and Engineering (BD&E), is an electro-optic systems and solutions design-to-build firm that develops cost effective optical sensing products for medical device, diagnostic, life science, and bio-technology industries.

According to a release, BD&E announced that their biomedical manufacturing division is certified by TUV Rheinland of North America to meet the global safety and quality regulatory requirements of IEC standard 61010-1. The IEC 60601-1 standard - which addresses many of the risks associated with electronic medical devices - has become a de facto requirement by most companies for electromedical products.

BD&E designed and built a line of biomedical devices for Boston- based biotechnology company, Immunetics, Inc., which required environmental compatibility certification. TUV Rheinland evaluated BD&E's manufacturing facilities and certified the devices for the TUV Rheinland North America (cTUVus) marking. The product was in full compliance with requirements for radiated emissions, immunity to Electrostatic Discharge, and immunity to Radiated Electromagnetic Fields.

In a statement from the President of Bodkin Design, Andrew Bodkin, "Bodkin Design is dedicated to providing the best value to our customers and the TUV certification further demonstrates our commitment to excellence in quality when developing safe and reliable bio-medical products. The safety mark gives our customers an additional level of assurance in using our products".
