Microliter syringes are for use with liquids only. They incorporate a hand-fitted stainless steel plunger with a finely bored syringe barrel. These syringes are ideal for homogeneous samples that are not prone to precipitation or bonding with glass.
Under the proper conditions, plunger wear is minimal and the life of a Microliter syringe is almost unlimited. However, when using heterogeneous solutions with a Microliter syringe, the user must be especially diligent about cleaning the syringe after each use. For more information, see our Hamilton Syringe Care and Use Guide on properly maintaining our syringes.
In some cases, even diligent cleaning is not sufficient and the barrel will become soiled. The deposits on the glass will compromise the tight tolerances between the glass and the plunger resulting in a frozen plunger. Plungers for Microliter syringes cannot be interchanged or replaced if damaged. For heterogeneous solutions, a Gastight syringe is the best option.

Technical Note - Determining Hamilton Syringe PerformanceA general procedure based on determining the mass of deionized water samples delivered by a syringe. True volume is calculated based on the density of water at specific temperatures.
Instructions - Microliter SyringesGet the basic information on proper use of syringes, cleaning, and specifications for temperature and pressure.
Instructions - Syringe CalibrationLearn about how Hamilton handles calibration of syringes via a gravimetric measurement.
Syringe TerminationsOne of the first steps to understanding the ideal syringe for your specific application is to know which termination is best. This article help you make that determination, explaining what to choose based on your requirements like dispense volume, need for autoclaving, desired dead volume, pressure tolerances, or necessary headspace.
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
