Ambion sells an adaptor that fits on top of a genie 2 vortex and will hold
12 tubes.  It costs about $75 and so is a low cost solution if thats what
you are looking for.   We use it for yeast and it is satisfactory.  It is
a cheapish product (mainly plastic) but does the job.  If you do a lot of
preps this will probably be too flimsy.  

You can see the product number here:

No picture of the product though.  It is basically just a disk with a few
plastic clips that hold your tubes horizontally.
