Vial hard to fill...

Topic created · 5 Posts · 308 Views
  • Haven’t had to fill a vial in a year or so and I can’t remember how to alleviate some of the pressure when filling a 10ml vial with test - feels like I’m squeezing one of those expert-level hand grippers

    Can someone please help this idiot?

  • Did you put another needle in to bleed out the air pressure?

    I did not. I didn’t want to puncture it twice before storing it. Is that the only way?

    Puncturing it one more time isn’t going to matter; it should seal up anyway.

    Just put in another needle/syringe to bleed the air the liquid displaces.
