There are some brands of eppendorf tubes that dont leak in the
extraction application.   You need to shop around for the so called high
quality types.  There are cheapos and there are premium types. I cant
recall a source, but trial and error should lead you to some eppendorf
tubes that dont leak cloroform, phenol, SDS/proteinase K etc.
