You could use a bare fiber adapter, such as:
formatting linkThis is only a temporary solution, but is OK for lab use. Insertion loss is likely to be higher than compared to a normal connector.
Not that you will need to inspect the end of your fiber, and cleave it if necessary. If you do not have a cleaver, then using the bare fiber adapter will probably not be an option for you.
