Ampoule

An ampoule is a small glass vial which is hermetically sealed by melting the thin top usually with a blowtorch flame after filling, and is most commonly used as a container for hypodermic injection solutions (eg. for pharmaceuticals). An ampoule is usually designed with a score mark around the neck so that the sealed vial top may be simply snapped off cleanly by hand.
