Pipette Ergonomics and Performance

We've learned that our best ideas come from listening to people in the lab who use our laboratory products. Responding to user demand, we have developed our ergonomic pipettes and pipettors with a priority on addressing the issues of hand strain, fatigue, and other repetitive strain injuries caused by daily use. You'll feel the difference the first time that you pick one up. Hamilton’s line of SoftGrip™ Pipettes are easy to use, reliable, and maximize the efficiency of your lab. Each product features a user-centric design that maximizes quality, comfort, and precision which significantly reduces your chance of injuries during liquid handling.
