Science - Medical: Pharmaceuticals / phthalate esters toxicity tests
Japanese term or phrase: 短試
This seems to be a type of container to culuture cells in test environment. It is used in "ワッセルマン型短試". Another usage: "短試に0.1mlの細胞浮遊液を注入し..."
What is the proper English name for this 短試??
My guess is it is not a shallow dish, like シャーレ.
