The first “Digitimer” (DIGItal Time Interval Marker and Event Release) was designed by the late HB (Bert) Morton at The National Hospital, London in the early 1960’s. This was then manufactured and sold world-wide by Devices Limited. Other complementary products for Medical Research followed and Digitimer Limited became an independent company specializing in Electronic Instruments for Medical Research and Clinical Investigations in 1972.
In 1997 Digitimer Limited acquired our sister company GMP Limited. GMP was a sub-contracting company who for many years built all our products as well as providing sub-contacting services to many other companies. In March 1997 Digitimer became certified to the ISO9002 Quality Standard. Over the next few years our quality system evolved in line with changing regulations and standards and we are now certified to ISO 13485: 2003 (EN ISO 13485: 2012). ISO 13485 is identical to the well known standard for Quality Management Systems ISO 9001, but with the more stringent controls that are required for the manufacture of medical equipment. As Digitimer has a successful history as a sub-contract manufacturer this activity is included in the scope of our ISO 13485 certification. As a result we can offer services to Medical Device companies who chose to outsource their manufacturing activities, assuring them of full regulatory compliance in everything we do for them.
