Cancer Diagnostics has them, numbers 0 thru 9 and letters A thru E. Note, however, that the "6" and "9" are identical! They run about 2 cents per bead and come in bottles of 500.

They are flat on two sides so don't roll around. We've been using them for about 6 months and everyone is happy with them. 

We tried confetti but everyone complained about how hard it was to pick up the pieces. Plus shapes and colors are not as easy to decode as numbers. We have a chart posted in the lab with each persons number or letter so it is really easy to determine who embedded a particular block.

Does anyone out in Histoland know of a vendor other that Mar Med to get small beads to put in cassettes to designate the person that embeds.
