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
