I would like to know also, please! Needle biopsies do not require inking, UNLESS you want to know the original site (R, L, etc) BUT usually the come all together, so........?

Has anyone ever experienced any of the colors or brands of marking inks
drying out the needle biopsies? We are experiencing prostate needle
bx's that, at times, are dryer than other processing times and a tech
questioned me if possibly the marking ink could be contributing to this
problem. Any thoughts, please!!
