I guess I see it differently.  I see it as an aid in avoiding disasters. We
type in the case number on the Shurmark's computer so there's no more risk
of mis-numbering than by hand and the etched version is much more legible
and less likely to be mis-read.  You simply have to look at each slide and
match it with each block before you pick the section up which is a standard
I have always followed even when we were hand-labeling slides.

 I love automation but don`t like prelabeled slides too much potential for
disaster. I rather automate every thing else and write each slide as it is
done. I guess you must inital if more than one person in lab. In  my  years
as a supervisor have seen swapted case slides and skipped me
night mares....It may be slower  but safe is always better.

Hi All,

     We would like to know from those of you who have the Shurmark slide
labeling system, do you have the techs initial the slides they cut? If not
how do you troubleshoot errors? etc. 

     Those of you who do not have the Shurmark, are you initialling slides
or simply recognize the handwriting?

Thanks in advance,

Lynn Dize,
