    Damaged my 10ml vial, need advice please

    I have damaged my 10ml test p vial...

    Is it possible to use a need/syringe to pull out from the damaged vial and put into the new 10ml glass bottle if its been cooked in a pressure cooker?

    Yes you can but I would also get a filter and re filter it just to be safe. Dont coke it, you may damage it unless you have experience. It's better to just re filter it.

    I have transfered oil from a vial to a glass eyedropper vial that I soaked in very hot water (not boiling), rinse, rinse, rinse. Rinse with rubbing alcohol... don't forget to clean the cap... do your best to dry. Maybe microwave for 10 secs a couple of times. Then transfer. Never had any problems as far as infections or absess'

    You'd be better off boiling it.

    Your right... I cracked a vial once because I heated it and then put it under cold water. Glass was really thin/fragile though.

    Borosilicate glass can withstand intense heat, but will break if rapidly cooled.
