Laboratory tweezers and forceps are small tools useful in a range of laboratory and other working environments for gripping and manipulating small or delicate objects.
Laboratory tweezers and forceps are typically made of disposable plastics such as polystyrene, or autoclavable and reusable plastics such as PMP (polymethylpentene), PTFE, reinforced nylon, or polypropylene. Plastic versions may often be supplied sterile in individual packs for use in cleanrooms and other controlled environments. Alternatively, tweezers and forceps are also widely available made from stainless steel, titanium or other metals for corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, and greater durability.
Tweezers and forceps find multiple applications in a range of working environments:
- In the laboratory for manipulation of small or delicate objects, for example microscope coverslips and filter discs or papers
- In clinical settings for dissection and examination of tissue and other biological samples
- In cleanroom or other controlled environments to avoid direct handing and help maintain sterility or cleanliness
- In industrial settings in manufacturing, electronics and fine engineering (such as watchmakers) for manipulation of small components
Tweezers and forceps are available in a range of sizes, styles and design variations:
- With pointed, blunt, rounded, curved, angled or flat tips
- With plain or serrated inner surfaces for extra grip
- With scissor-type handles
- With defined dimensions for precision work
- With foam or silicone-covered handles or tips for extra grip
- With self-closing/locking guide pins to keep the tips aligned for a firmer grip
- With an inert PTFE coating to prevent contamination, scratching or damage of delicate samples
