Source for tubes for paste storage

From: Roy Perkinson <royperkinson>
Date: Sunday, April 5, 1998
Regarding Mark Andersson's recent inquiry about tubes for long term
storage of starch paste, we are pleased with the performance of the
30cc plastic syringes made by B-D (Becton Dickinson). Their item
number is 309662. We buy them from Fisher Scientific. We adopted
this approach after reading the very fine article, "Long-term
Storage of Wheat Starch Paste," by Bruce Miller and William Root, in
Studies in Conservation, vol 36 1991-85-92.
