Fine gauge needles are used for animal injections to limit tissue damage and sample loss. Removable needles have minimal dead volume and for this reason are recommended over a luer or luer lock connection. These needles are compatible with RN syringes 100 µL and smaller. At the time of ordering specify the desired length and point style.
Can Hamilton syringes be used on humans?Hamilton syringes are not manufactured for human use and are designed primarily for analytical chemistry and chromatography applications. Hamilton also makes syringes and accessories for life science and neuroscience, but those applications are solely intended for animal use. To discuss potential off-label uses for Hamilton syringes, please contact Hamilton technical support.
Why is there a wire sticking out of my new needle?Some smaller gauge needles are shipped with cleaning wires threaded through the needle to ensure that the needles are free of debris. The wire must be removed before use.
What is the difference between the Syringe and the Calibrated Syringe?These syringes are manufactured the exact same way. The Syringe does not include a Certificate of Calibration, whereas the Calibrated Syringe is a serialized syringe including a Certificate of Calibration traceable to NIST. Hamilton Company offers a recalibration service for Calibrated Syringes. All Calibrated Syringe part numbers begin with CAL.
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
