The SoftAide Pipette Controller is easy-to-use, reliable and will maximize your laboratory's efficiency. The SoftAide is ideal for use with both glass and plastic standard pipettes. The reusable safety check valve and hydrophobic 0.2 µm PTFE membrane filter prevents contamination of the unit by liquid or vapors of the solution being aspirated into the pipette.
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 of 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 competitior 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 placing it inside an autoclave bag before autoclaving. Doing so may extend the life of the pipette.
Work with R&D engineers to customize Hamilton parts
Hamilton's "Custom Built" program puts you directly in contact with a Hamilton R&D Engineer to discuss your application and product needs. The engineer will point you to a standard solution or propose a customized solution to meet your needs.Talk to an engineer
