We purchased Nalgene "Cryoboxes" last year from Daigger, a
scientific supplyhouse but shoud be available from other
sources and direct from Nalgene.
Boxes (polycarbonate; 9X9 --for 81 tubes),
Cat. No. 526-0909.
Racks (Stainless Steel; 9 shelf), Cat. No. 5035-0009
There are many other sizes available. They seem to be durable,
etc. The only
drawback is that they can be COLD and slick when searching
for that sample thatyou just know is somewhere in the
freezer:-). Anyway, hope this works--Roy French
