Testing & Storing Nembutal Taking a Sample for Testing
The tests described in this Chapter require only a very small sample of the powder or veterinary liquid to be tested ( ~ 0.5gm of powder or 6ml of veterinary liquid is enough to carry out all of the tests). A sample of veterinary liquid Nembutal for testing can be obtained as follows:
The veterinary packaging is designed so that variable amounts of the drug can be withdrawn from the 100ml bottle using a syringe and hypodermic needle without breaking the sterile seal. Although there is no need for the Nembutal to be sterile for a peaceful death, the drug will keep longer if the seal is not damaged and the solution remains sterile.
The bottle should only be fully opened (by breaking the seal and removing the rubber stopper) when the drug is either ready to be used or it is to be discarded.
