Dear Ones,

We stopped using the smaller bottles and are using 100 mL bottles. We attach a test tube with a small pipette for the "dropper". The label and test tube are secured with clear packing tape.

Out of curiosity, for those of you in academia, how are you handling GHS secondary container labeling in teaching lab situations where the average freshman student isn?t exactly known for their attention to detail? We often have a multitude of small dropping bottles with 30 to 50 ml which becomes a labeling nightmare because of lack of space for labels due to the small size of the container.
