    Other option for dispensing R0871 reagent?

    The R0871 reagent bottle seems to be "leaky"
    When trying to drop reagent into the tube to test for FC, several drops come out at a time, especially when first turning the bottle over. The previous bottle I had did not have the same issue, so I don't think this is normal.
    What other options do I have for measuring out the proper amount of reagent? Is there a dropper or a refillable bottle available?

    Have u tried to squeeze the bottle slightly before inverting to apply the drops to create some reverse pressure? May work js

    I will try that tomorrow and see if it helps. It's funny, the previous bottle didn't have the same issue

    If you are still having issues, and have the old bottle, swap tips

    Recently, some bottles were shipped accidentally with dispensing style fitments rather than metering fitments. If you pop the tip off and it has a straight-through bore hole as opposed to a plastic cross with a tiny hole in it, then it has the wrong fitment on the bottle.

    If that's the case, TFTestkits can ship you a new fitment.
