You can use a spreadsheet program like Excel or a database program, like 
MS-Access or Filemaker Pro to enter label info and print them to a lazer

allow you to design a custom label.

One concern is the quality of the labels. I've found nalgene polypaper 
labels to be the best. ToughTags are excellent as well.

Dear Histonetters
To reduce labeling errors, I was wondering if any of you know about or can
tell me about a windows based computer driven slide labeler we could attach
to our PC in pathology, does such a miracle exist? Thanks for the help . 
what are you doing to reduce labelling errors?               Dana Dittus
