    Using the Sample Sizer

    I have noticed that when using the sample sizer for 10ml that I get a "dome" of water at the top of the test tube.

    I was wondering if other sample sizer users shake that off or leave it?

    I noticed that if I leave it, the sample is just above the marking on the tube, if I shake it off the level will be just below the marking.

    To get consistent results I have been leaving it.

    I know it's a small amount, and most likely trivial, I'm just curious how others go about this.

    Here's a pic of that "dome" of water.

    Trivial, but shake it off. It should be part of the sample size, not stuck on the sizer
