Glass VialsThere is much debate surrounding the correct spelling of vial. Is it "vial" or "phial?" Frankly, I have no idea, but here at Container & Packaging Supply, we chose to call it a vial. I guess that's much better than a "vile." Who wants to store product in a vile? "Darling, do be a dear and fetch me that vile of perfume?" This spelling does tend to reflect badly on your product.
Our vials are made of glass, and use a unique unit of measure to determine their capacity. That unit is called a dram (more specifically, a fluid dram). A dram is 1/8 of a fluid ounce (abbreviated as oz). Whether or not you're using the Avoirdupois, Apothecaries', Imperial or US Standard measuring system, 1 dram is about 1 teaspoon.
These glass vials/phials/viles come in many different capacities, styles, colors, and shapes. Colored glass (blue, green, amber) provide some protection for photo-sensitive (light-senstive) products.
