RE: Slide labelling

From:"Morken, Tim"

The DAKO Seymour slide label system would meet your needs perfectly. It can
be installed on any Windows computer. The printer and software is from DAKO.
The labels are thermal-printed  and then covered with a plastic flap. They
are totally resistant to any histology lab solutions and solvents. The only
drawback is that each label must be typed into the system, although there is
some flexibility for repeating labels and lines.

This system is cheaper than the slide etching systems, although those are
very good also (we have both).

Does anyone use slide labels that are resistant to solvents and stains, that
can be computer generated, and affixed to the slide at the waterbath ?  I
would like to eliminate the slide labelling step after staining (time
consuming and a potential source of error)
