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.

Manual - SoftGrip Single-Channel PipettesThis user manual covers SoftGrip fixed- and adjustable-volume pipettes, explaining the proper operation, calibration, care, and use to extend product life.
Are the Hamilton SoftGrip pipettes autoclavable?Yes, the Hamilton adjustable volume, fixed volume, and multi-channel pipettes are autoclavable at 121°C without the need for disassembly or recalibration.
Why are the Hamilton pipettes autoclavable?All materials used in the SoftGrip pipette, including those in the upper body, are autoclavable. Many competitor models contain materials in the upper body that cannot withstand autoclaving, causing melting or warping that leaves the pipette unusable.
When I want to autoclave the Hamilton SoftGrip pipette, do I need to do anything special to the pipette prior?It is suggested to loosen the lower body of the Hamilton pipette and place it inside an autoclave bag before autoclaving. Doing so may extend the life of the product.
Pipette CalibrationCalibration is a simple procedure that requires only a single key! Available to fit any SoftGrip model or volume range, Hamilton's calibration key allows you to service your instruments in the lab.
