Dispensing Unit-Dose Nebulizer Medications

I wanted to re-address this question since it has been a few years since it was last asked. What container does your Pharmacy dispense unit-dose nebulizer medications in if not available commercially in unit dose? Looking through past questions it seems some of us have utilized containers such as sterile eye drop bottles and slip tip syringes. 60 mL Aerogen syringe specifically says 'for continuous nebulization' on it so thinking that is not an option? Wondering if there are any other solutions out there. Thanks in advance for your expertise!
