rubber stopper breaking apart
i was drawing out of the vial today and i noticed a few tiny particles in there. i looked closely and it was from the rubber stopper on the vial. i was thinking of buying new sterile vials and drawing the remaining out and using a whatman to filter it out into the new vial. any other ideas of what i should do ?

you'll lose more product than if you just take a syringe and suck out those little bits of rubber stopper.
thats going to happen anytime you're drawing from a large vial multiple times

use a smaller gauge, the bigger the gauge, the more ur gonna tear up the stopper....

I've noticed that I get particles when I enter the vial at or near the same spot every time. Try to always draw from a different spot. That works for me.

Yeah bro try not to hit the same spot every time.

so should i suck the remaining particles out ?? or when i'm drawing it out just try to avoid them ?? also... what would happen if i shot some of the particles from the stopper inside me?

Refilter with a whatman .22 microns

I'd take powerlifters advice, good luck.
