German to English translations [PRO] Science - Chemistry; Chem Sci/Eng / Vapour Pressure Osmometer
German term or phrase:Auftropfen
"Das Auftropfen der Lösung bzw. des Lösungsmittels mithilfe von Spritzen kann visuell über einen Spiegel (4), der ebenfalls an der Frontseite angebracht ist beobachtet werden."
From the description of a vapor pressure osmometer's cell unit. I think I know what "Auftropfen" is describing, but just can't think of the English word and the dictionaries are not helping. TIA for your assistance.
This certainly had a great many hits in the right sort of context, so must indeed be the translation. Thanks Emma and the peer graders - appreciate everyone's help. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
