I am trying to find a source to purchase some thicker-wall, stronger, =
glass Drosophila vials. These are the standard (8 dram) =91shell=92 =
vials used to raise Drosophila, but thicker-walled, and thus stronger. =
We have some very old ones lying around from an unknown source (they =
have a lip around the opening that may also add strength). We use then =
in manipulating flies in the absence of anesthesia, and they work great =
for tasks that the standard glass vials cannot do because they break.
Does anyone know where we might find such vials?
Any leads would be much appreciated.
