Capsule Holder: Make One!

Gelcap bottom in holder

This close-up shows the capsule bottom inserted in my makeshift capsule holder. The capsule in the blue-willow dish is an entire one; the top of the capsule is out of sight (haha) to the right of the picture.

I was hoping the capsule-holder, at least, would hold the bottom part steady, while I tapped the paper spill - or its chute - to get the powder into the bottom part of the capsule.

Thanks to pharmacist Ron Kumar, for describing to me the "Powder-Push" method I'm using for the Biosponge "FlyAway" powder.

Thanks to Tech Nancy at Saseenos Veterinary Services, for suggesting the Monoject 412 syringe to get the powder into the gel-caps. This didn't work for Biosponge, but it worked really well for the Tylosin.
