Autoclaves and Sinks


Autoklave and Sinks

Under the name “Kuhner labEquip", the Kuhner AG acts as the Swiss distributor of two premium manufacturers of autoclaves and sinks: Tomy Digital Biology Co., Ltd., and Astell Scientific.

Tomy Digital Biology Co., Ltd.

The Autoclaves of the SX-E series are manufactured by the Japanese company Tomy Digital Biology Co., Ltd. Since its foundation in 1958, Tomy Digital Biology has dedicated itself to providing high quality instruments and superior services to customers across various industry segments, including biotechnology, biological engineering, medical science and food development.

Autoclaves of the SX-E series unite several features for an efficient and safe operation. The main body is very compact due to its elaborate design thereby thoroughly saving installation space. A top-open lid, which can be operated easily with a single hand, is opened with minimal effort owing to mechanical assistance. An LED display shows the working status for easy monitoring of the autoclaving process. A rapid air-cooling function (vessel-cooling fan) permitting reduction of chamber cool down time is provided as a standard feature. The optimal sterilizing course can be selected from among five courses, such as the liquid sterilizing course in addition to that for normal sterilization.
