Default inexpensive vials, racks, etc. ?

I need to obtain a few hundred plastic vials, about 3 inches tall and at least 1.5 inches in diameter (7.5 cm x 4 cm) like the one shown below. Some racks would also be handy. They do not need to be specific to tissue culture. I will be using them to chill individual pit fruit seeds in a refrigerator at 37.4 F (3 C).

Thanks!

It turns out that in the container industry, a "vial" is usually has a volume of 1 fluid ounce (30 mL) or less -- often more like 1 fluid dram (1/8 of a fluid ounce). What I'm looking for has a volume of about 4 oz (115 mL) which the container industry call a "jar". Today I found some reasonably priced suppliers for just about every kind of vial, jar, and what-not you can imagine:
SKS Bottle & Packaging, Inc.

Yankee Containers
In particular I found the 4 oz size of "clear plastic straight-sided jars" with lids for $0.44 each in quantities of 24, $0.39 each in quantities of 280, and $0.33 each in quantities of 1100.

I think this makes me a jar head.

Hey thanks Jarred! I like their jar better. It's the same price but better proportioned and there is no minimum quantity!
