It's not always relevant for those of us overseas to comment on availability
of certain items available in the States. But in this instance, I can only
suggest that you look in Hardware stores locally, including K-Mart etc. for
food storage containers  esp. for frozen and refrigerated storage, as these
tend to be more leak proof . The sizes are varied enough that they can be
used for medium up to whole organs esp. if you wish to pin them out on cork
tile and float them upside down.
If you intend to buy a large amount of these, then check out the base of the
container for the manufacturer and contact them direct, you might get a bulk
or wholesale discount.
