repacking Isovue

We are currently only able to get Isovue (iopamidol) in 500 mL bottles - the smaller sizes we normally use are on shortage. Most of our OR cases use about 10 mL dose. Does anyone know if its OK to repack Isovue into 10 mL doses? If so, what BUD do you use? If allowed, does this need to be done in the hazardous drug cabinet? Any information provided is much appreciated!
