[Histonet] block storage and eradastain

From:"Mollie Lange"

Hello Everyone,
I have two questions.  First, I need to store approximately 2000 (yes,
2000!) paraffin blocks, each measuring approx 24X40X20mm (not cassette
size). I am looking for sturdy cardboard boxes a little smaller than
shoe box size. Readily available freezer boxes are too small, and other
conventional boxes seem too flimsy.  Does anyone have a good source for
boxes?  Maybe a vendor who makes boxes to spec?
Second- are Eradastain and Eradosol still available?  We used to use
this in the Dark Ages to remove stain residue from glassware and
fingers.  Is there a good substitute, homemade or commercially
I am in the research side of neurohistology and neuropathology and have
gotten tons of useful info from the Histonet.
Thanks for any suggestions,
