    Size does matter!

    Or does it.....

    While testing this morning I ran out of 0871 in my .75 oz bottle so did the test with a newer 2oz bottle. The drops seemed to be a tad smaller and came out of the bottle faster. FC read 8.0. Knowing that couldn't be right compared to last nights test of 6, I poured some of the 2 oz regent into the .75 oz bottle and got 5.0. Did the test twice. Each time 8.0 out of 2 oz size, 5.0 from the .75 size. A 3.0 difference is a big deal.

    Since I normally test from the .75 oz bottle I'll continue to rely on that test instead of the larger one. Just thought it was worth noting if y'all happen to change bottles. Thankfully I happen to have a perfect TFP pool.
