Microscope objective vials -- U.S. and Canada only

Post by rjlittlefield »

Periodically someone asks where to obtain objective storage vials with threads in the cap.

I recently ran into this source:


The vendor says that "I usually have about 300-500 of these vials". They are available at the above link and also on ebay, keyword "objective vials", U.S. and Canada only.

The order that I received matched the description: obviously used, but in very good condition.

Riks's source seems really attractive. For what it's worth, I've done two successful vial transactions with the eBay vendor below. Note that if you check the vendor's other auctions, he has two different sizes of vials.

Objective canisters

I also have a 100 or so of these objective canisters. They are both new and used. None are damaged. If you need a few you can contact me at gw2brown@earthlink.net
