We use pens from StatLabs we like, just have to let the cassettes dry a
minute or two before putting them in alcohol waiting for processing.

  Thank you for this information.  We are looking for non-smudge pens
as well. This will help.  Did you find that the Surgipath pens did not
smudge or come off during processing?

We recently had the same problems and researched several companies and
brands and found for our usage the following were the best: 

Surgipath pens #01880 come in a box of 10 for $27.00

Marketlab pens #ML0479 come in a box of 10 for $37.00

Mercedes Medical has a new pen from Norway that we tried that are only
$13 per box of 10, but do not have the order number for them as they
not in stock quite yet.

The pens from Newcomer (Histo pen) and the Cancer Diagnostics pen did
not smear, etc., but dried out so fast and often came already dry in

Good Luck!!
