Glass Ampules


144 or 288 clear glass ampules that hold 5ml each. They are of the standard shape with an elongated neck and have a gold band on or below the "bulb" of the ampule. These can be used for a variety of purposes, the most notable being to seal off a chemical that reacts with the air or is toxic in some way. Usually you just heat the bulb/upper section until it gets very soft, then pull or twist it until it's sealed off. These ampules are very useful and can be quite hard to find. 5ml ampules are the most common, however, because they are a good size for most chemicals to fit in. They are 88mm tall with a 6mm neck and a diameter of 16mm at the bottom.
