I posted about this earlier this year. Apparently they are no longer available in the US. I have found no substitute for these racks or adapter and Sakura was unwilling to help in any way. (Which I am still miffed about). 
If someone has a metal shop, here is a great opportunity.

Subject: [Histonet] Large slide rack and adaptor for Sakura stainer

Hi all, Sakura has discontinued its large slide (50 x 75 mm) rack and metal adaptor for their Prisma stainer. Does anyone know a source for these that may have some left? Or do you have some you don't use anymore? The slide rack is a modified 24-slide Sakura rack that has cross bars on the bottom. The metal adaptors are inserts that slide in vertically on each end of the rack to space the slides.

The catalog numbers from Sakura are:

Large Slide Basket Sakura #4366
Adaptor for Large slides  #4365
