Dear MaryAnn,

Inveresk Research International based in Scotand market a tray very similar 
to the one you described. The insert is not removable and there are 32 
compartments to put tissue into formalin and a tight tupperware type lid to 
seal it with and they also supply a cardboard plan that fits in the lid to 
identify the tissues.
In June 1998 the price was 34.50 for 10 trays.The address is:-
