Try whirl -paks.  These  can be purchased at VWR.  They are nice because you can
write on them with a maker.  They come in   different sizes. Wrap the specimens
in aluminum foil then place in the bags.  This will help preven freezer burn.

There are freezer boxes also in the VWR catalog under Refrigerator/Freezer
accessories that are ideal for storing the bags.
Also check outh the cryo-box racks for storing the boxes. This is what was used
in the lab I worked in.

some are in OCT, some are just Snap.

Right now they are in little plastic holders which are fine, but I need new
holders because I need to alter the bank numbers on them so I was going to
set up a whole new system.

Any ideas?

How are they prepared? Are they  embedded in OCT?
