Claims:
1. An apparatus (1) for separately sealing a number of objects in a tubing (5) and temporarily storing the thus sealed objects and comprising a, seen in the state of use, upright container (2) having an upper aperture (4) and serving for accommodating the sealed objects, a bed (12) located at the top of the container, an annular magazine (3) rotatably mounted on the bed (12) with a supply of tubing (5), a guide disc (9) located on an upper area of the magazine and having a central aperture (11) for leading the tubing (5) from the magazine across the outer periphery (17) of the disc and from this across its upwardly facing face to the central aperture, means for retaining at least one sealed object against rotation when the magazine (3) is rotating during use, characterised in that a number of carriers (19) for bringing the tubing along when the magazine is rotated are made mainly uniformly distributed along the outer periphery (17) of the disc (9).
2. An apparatus (1) according to claim 1, characterised in that the means are mainly designed as an open tube (13) placed in the bed (12) for passage of objects introduced at the top and successively sealed in the tubing (5).
3. An apparatus (1) according to claim 1 or 2, where the magazine is defined by a lower bottom (6) and an interior and exterior, ringshaped wall (7,8), characterised in that the guide disc (9) is attached on the interior wall (7) and is extending outwardly in the gap (10) from the exterior wall (8).
4. An apparatus according to claim 1,2, or 3, characterised in that at least one handle (14,15) for rotating the magazine (3) with e. g. the fingers or hand are designed on the exterior wall (8).
5. An apparatus (1) according to claim 4, characterised in that the at least one handle consists of an upper extension of the exterior wall (14), and that a number of cuts (15) are made in this extension.
6. An apparatus (1) according to claims 15, characterised in that the carriers (19) on the outer periphery of the guide disc alternately are designed as cuts and projections on the periphery (17) of the disc.
7. An apparatus (1) according to claim 6, characterised in that the cuts and projections are mainly shaped as a rectangle or trapezium.
8. An apparatus (1) according to claim 6, characterised in that the cuts and projections together are extending in waves.
9. An apparatus (1) according to claims 18, characterised in that a partition wall (16) extending mainly horizontally in the container (2) is arranged under the bed (12) for the magazine (3).
10. An apparatus (1) according to claims 19, characterised in that the container (2) is divided into a lower, bucketshaped part (22) and an upper part (23) open towards the bottom and detachably joined with the lower part during use, that a lid (24) is part of the container, and that the lower and upper part of the container are arranged in such a way that the lid fits both parts.
