Hi Greg,
Yes, Fisher has discontinued the old plugs, and in fact cancelled our standing order.  We are not happy with the new plugs.  Fisher made the change because pricing has gone up on the material.  I don't know how much they will respond to pressure if everyone complains.
You can still get the old plugs at Genesee Scientific.  They have decided the new stuff is inferior.  The only trouble is the price is higher.

Was informed today by my stockroom that Fisher has discontinued "Buzz plugs", they have substituted a product not quite the same.  Much softer and they don't fit the vials as tightly as Buzz plugs did.  Anyone else seeing this development?  What are you using for stoppers?
