I don’t know if you have thought of this already or if it would cause you any problems in what you are doing, but typically when inserting a glass rod into tubing or a rubber stopper or anything else of the sort it is common practice to put a small amount of glycerol or soap onto the rod to lubricate it and allow it to slide in more easily.

A step in one of the analyses we do in our lab involves connecting Tygon tubing to the end of a glass tube. We have Kevlar gloves for this purpose, but I’ve heard of an additional safety device that can also be used for this purpose—though I can’t find one. I’ve done the obligatory Google search with no luck. Has anyone heard of or used anything that reduces the risk of getting cut while attaching hose/tubing to glass tubes or rods?
Many thanks; I hope everyone has a great weekend!
