Richardson Electronics releases washable peripherals
Richardson Electronics, a wireless medical information technology provider, has released ScrollSeal Washable Mouse and SpillSeal Protected Keyboard. The LaFox, Ill.-based company said will help the problem of bacterial cross-infection in medical environments where a disinfecting protocol is required.

Richardson said that these devices have the look and feel of normal peripherals, yet they can be washed under running tap water or immersed in antibacterial products for complete disinfection.
