Default worm plate holding boxes

Dear Worm People Looking for Plastic Boxes to hold your Plates,

After spending several hours on the phone with the injection molders and
the owners of the now-defunct company that owns the mold for the
particular boxes that some of you "know and love", here is what I found out:

1) Yes the injection mold for these boxes still exists, and yes, a
molding company is willing to make another run of boxes.
2) The minimum quantity they will make is 2000 lids and boxes.
3) For them, even 2000 is a small "nuisance" quantity, plus, plastic has
gone up in price a lot, so the price would be $19 per box by the time
Tritech gets them, and trying to ship big plastic boxes and lids without
them cracking requires a lot of special packaging and handling plus
shipping that will cost as much as the boxes themselves, in small
quantities. (Labs getting hundreds could get them on pallets, cheaper).
4) Tritech has no room to store and stock thousands of worm boxes, so we
would have to know that 2000 of them would be ordered before getting the
company to make the boxes.

So, here is the bottom line.... well it might take up 4-6 lines...
Tritech is always happy to help out the worm community, and if some worm
person contacts the labs and finds 2000+ boxes worth of interest, we
will gladly make all the purchasing and shipping arrangements to get
everyone the boxes; alternatively, maybe you can find some boxes at your
local dollar/drug/hardware stores that work well enough. The advantage
there would be that they wouldn't have to be shipped, the disadvantage
is that they might not fit the plates as perfectly.

Best regards to everyone and see you at the Worm Meeting,

Hello, Dr. Papp.

Becky McKean gave me your contact information. I work for a basic
research lab on campus. We work with /c. elegans/. I am writing to
inquire about these "worm boxes" that Tritech was considering carrying.
Our lab is very interested in purchasing 20 of these, but I am wondering
about the timeline we are dealing with. Should we go ahead and find an
alternative source, or will Tritech carry them in the near future?

Thanks for your time.

Have a nice day.
