English term or phrase: bubble in the quantity
I am translating into Russian a guide for filling in various forms used in a clinical trial. And I don't understand the meaning of the phrase in parentheses (Bubble in the quantity you wish to order for Practice Placebo). Would be grateful for explanations.

Context:

Use the ANCILLARY REORDER FORM
Complete the following fields:
Account Number (7 digits), Site Number (3 digits) and the Quantity required (Bubble in the quantity you wish to order for Practice Placebo)

Thanks a lot!

Explanation:
"Bubble" is a type of mark to fill in a space that can be read and is typical on a scantron sheet, usually being filled out with pencil since the scantron machine is sensitive when scanning carbon.
