RE: jars and storage

I have used multi-purpose polyethylene containers(check with Fisher) for manual stain set-ups.  Including the xylene steps.  They never dissolved, only swelled a little.

	I've suddenly been assigned a student with Storage Needs. Xylene 
resistant containers (which usually means glass), about 625 of them. 
I searched the histonet archives, and got Industrial Containers & 
Supply in Salt Lake City, UT, but I need to find more sites. 
Specifically we need smallish to medium sized containers in which 
specimens can be stored in xylene for extended periods (meaning 
air tight lids) *and* that are cheap. 
Unfortunately, I don't find this in the archives. Anyone in histoland 
know of a supplier of such containers?
