Histopathology

Everything a modern laboratory needs

In the 21 years since its launch in Germany, Kugel medical has become a leading manufacturer of histopathology equipment on a global level, with a presence in laboratories, forensic centres, universities, anatomical institutes, pharmacy firms and veterinary pathologies.

The  products include almost everything used in a modern laboratory. ‘Our  specialties are the integrated exhaust units for dissection and autopsy  tables,’ explains CEO Robert Karl. ‘We also offer a complete range of  stainless steel furniture, morgue refrigeration units and transport and  storage equipment, which are distinguished by their ease of use,  installation and maintenance, high reliability and long service life.’ 

Recently, Robert Karl has been consistently asked  not only to provide equipment, but also to perform entire laboratory  planning. ‘It makes no difference whether you’re looking for a partner  for sophisticated furnishing of an entire building complex or a partial  fit out. ‘We are your point of contact for all questions  concerning design, development, planning and implementing,’ adds Claudia  Karl, CFO at Kugel medical. In such cases, Robert Karl and team work  closely with architects and engineers to arrive at a perfect arrangement  of workspaces and compliance with government regulations and limits for  alcohol, formalin and xylol concentration.

Based on extensive  discussions with their international customers, the company designs a  tailored concept that suits their customers’ needs. Modern 3-D drawings enable customers to gain a  realistic impression of their future laboratory. ‘On the technical side,  exhaust and ventilation technology has never been more important than  now, especially energy recovery and filtration of pollutants play a main  role,’ Robert Karl points out. 

Kugel now exports to 72 countries, assisted by  about 130 business partners. Thus the firm’s advanced solutions are    internationally – in the renowned Medical Faculty of the University of  Melbourne, Australia; Our Lady of Maryknoll Hospital in Hong Kong;  Hospital No. 4 in Olympic City, Sochi, Russia; the Charité in Berlin,  one of Europe’s biggest university hospitals, and more. The firm reports that it has worked with some of  its business partners for over a decade. ‘Something we are very proud  of”, says Claudia Karl. At the moment, the entrepreneurial couple is  aiming for a foothold in Latin America. ‘The upcoming MEDICA 2016,’ she  believes, ‘is the perfect contact platform for us to meet new business  partners from abroad and from overseas in particular.’ 

 Meet them at Medica 2016 in Düsseldorf, this  November. Go to Hall 3, booth E92 to experience Kugel medical’s histo-  pathology ideas.
