    What are these bottles called and where can I get one? I feel like I am wasting alot of HC-110 by just sticking a syringe into the syrup, there's still a fair bit stuck to it that I have to wash off. These bottles look perfect for this stuff, actualy I guess its just the cap thats special.

    Did you ever take a Chemistry class???? They make rubber stoppers for test tubes with a little hole in it to put things in.

    Now finding a place where you don't have to buy them in bulk might be an issue. Good luck.

    they are used for dispensing children's medication with a blunt syringe. Available at any drugstore, cheap. Also fits rodinal bottles quite well.

    Its not a special cap that you need, its an "adaptor" that comes packaged with a childs medicine dosing syringe. I picked up mine at the local pharmacy for less than $3. The syringe is marked in ml. The brand name on it is "EZY DOSE" 10ml oral syringe with dosage korc(sic)--VERY HANDY little gadget!! I just ran into my dr and looked at my spare--its priced at $1.89.

    I told a pharmacist what I needed and why. She gave me a couple amber glass prescription bottles saying that she had always wanted a dark room but had never had the time. She thought it was great I was doing this in my retirement. It gave her hope that she might still do it. Strange where are dreams are, and that some can be satisfied so cheaply.
