As far as I can tell, they are not being made any more.
I've adapted most of my "Corex" procedures either by
reducing the volume (e.g., isolating RNA from one
60-100 mm plate of cells, I use 0.5-1 ml of GITC
lysis solution, and use 1.5 ml or 2 ml Eppendorf
tubes) or by using disposable plastic (polypropylene,
not poystyrene) conical 15 ml tubes, and spinning
slower and for longer time.
