RE: [Histonet] Rotring ink for marking arteries and veins

From:"Nick Kirk"

Hi Sarah

Rotring are a company that make all sorts of pens including calligraphy
pens, fountain pens marker pens etc.
They also manufacture all sorts of inks to go with those pens.
Your best bet would probably be a local stationer or arts supply shop.
I have used their India ink in the past for marking excision margins.
It worked quite well.

Subject: [Histonet] Rotring ink for marking arteries and veins

Hello Netters,
  I had a researcher come in and ask about Rotring ink.  It was used in
a procedure to inject and mark the arteries and veins with different
colors.  I know Polysciences has the Batson's Anatomical Corrosion Kit.
I spoke to Pam Marcum at Polysciences and she said the Batson's is not
Rotring ink.  She thought Rotring ink may be a tattoo ink.  Does anyone
know what Rotring ink is, where it can be purchased, and how it would be
diluted to inject into the vessels?
Thanks, Sarah
