PCR Tube Rack

This tip was sent in by a fellow grad student, Amanda Verde.

If you find yourself short on PCR tube racks and burdened with empty pipette boxes, you need not fret.  Pipette tips and their boxes come in a variety of sizes and as a result some have holes perfectly sized for PCR tubes.

The box can do more than just hold PCR tubes, the cavernous interior can be filled with ice to keep the PCR reactions cool as other protocol steps are performed.
