Tool for loading reference materials such as lithium metal into ECC-Opto-Std, ECC-Opto-SBS and ECC-Aqu test cells.

Basically, the tool is a small tube (cannula) with a knock-out pin inside. A tiny piece of lithium metal is first picked up by pressing the cannula onto a piece of lithium foil (>0.2 mm thick). The cannula is then inserted into the bore of the Ref-sleeve and the lithium inside the cannula is extruded into the Ref-bore by actuating the knock-out pin.
