Syringe Plunger Types
Hamilton manufactures a variety of plungers depending on the intended use of the syringe. This article describes which plunger design and materials are optimal for each type of syringe.
Another aspect of proper syringe selection requires knowing the graduations visible on a particular syringe series and volume. This detailed table of data provides scale length, total scale divisions, major graduations, minor graduations, and sub-minor graduations of each syringe series by volume.

Lab needles need to perform in many different environments and terminations are available in non-coring, beveled, drilled side port and more. Click to see which version is best for your application.
Needle Gauge Chart
In addition to being inert stainless steel, lab needles require proper sizing in order to function properly. The diameter of a needle is defined by its gauge. In addition to being inert stainless steel, lab needles require proper sizing in order to function properly. Hamilton company offers a wide spectrum of gauges. This index displays the internal and outer dimensions as well as the dead volume.
Needle Length Guide
Needle length is a critical consideration for every application. Each needle hub design requires a slightly different length definition. It doesn't matter if the application is utilizing lab needles for life science injection or environmental analysis of ground water, the injection needs to hit the right target. This guide illustrates how to make the different measurements.
