The best source is to manufacture your own. We put about 250ul of epoxy
or other resin in a 1.5 ml eppi tube. Before this hardens, we insert
a small headless nail (brad) that has been hammered into the end of a wooden
dowel. This serves as a handle.
There are two advantages.
2: guaranteed to fit the brand of eppi tubes that you buy, not a generic
