Japanese term or phrase: メスアップ
メタノールで10~100mlにメスアップ後、その0.5~2mlを採取し、

Its original meaning is to fill messzylinder up to the gauge line with solvent. However I don't think I can use "mess up" here.

Any suggestions would be appriciated.

neutral  KathyT: But why would you enter "FYI" as the glossary entry? // In that case, entering nothing at all would have been significantly better than "FYI," but otherwise the most common/appropriate term would be a good start. Thanks, Yuzouren :-)

measure up to the line (in a flask)


Explanation:
This is a guess, Aki, but could it be a combi-word of "measure" and "up" into a chemistry flask.
