Needle Point Styles

Several different needle point styles are offered on Hamilton syringe and needle products depending on the application. The correct point style varies depending on the intended application. Below are a few examples of common applications.

Animal Injections: Point Style 4 with a 45º angle allows for the most accurate targeting of a specific biological structure.

Manual HPLC Injections: Most manual injection valves are designed to be used with a 22 gauge Point Style 3 needle.

Manual GC Injections: Historically a Point Style 2 was required to achieve efficient septum penetration with minimized coring. With Hamilton’s new line of GC septa there is evidence that indicates the Point Style AS will consistently extend septa life by as much as 10-fold.

Drawing Sample: Any point style will efficiently draw a sample, but when it is important to get the last drop out of a vial use Point Style 3 or AS to reach all the way to the bottom.

Note: Syringes and needles manufactured by Hamilton Company are intended for scientific research and laboratory use only and are not intended for human in vivo use.
