Ordinary droppers are constantly being broken, lost or inadvertently exchange for others previously impregnated wth medicaments. When combined with the stopper they corrode and disintegrate, and for various reasons become useless. The result is that one seldom has on hand a perfectly reliable sterile and serviceable instrument. To overcome this difficulty I have had made, as here illustrated, a blued steel clip, which springs securely over the sides of the bottle and at the same time holds firmly a common rubber pipette, which, after using, is readily returned, to be at hand when wanted, and which, being cheap, is easily replaced.
