I use Shur/Mark pens from TBS. The cat # is H-MP-B. They stay on through
processing,embedding and scrapping. Jenny

We have had the same things happening in our lab.  I recently made a
purchase of Tissue Dye from a company called Cancer Diagnostics Inc. and
they sent me a sample pen, I have used it for almost a week, it is bright
and vibrant even after processing and embedding.  I have not checked into
the pricing for it yet, but you can find the company on the web.  I am
definitely going to be getting in touch with them for more information about
their pens!

	I have been having a very hard time using the Secureline Markers
	Allegiance. They were so dependable for years, never smeared and
didn't come
	off the cassettes after processing. Now, we are having a big
problem. The
	numbers are so light after processing that it has become a whole new
	rewriting the cassettes. I ordered markers from Richard Allen but
they seem
	the same, they just have their name on the side. I spoke to the
Fisher Rep
	and all he came up with was Secureline again.
	Do any of you use a different type marker?  Are any of you
experiencing what
	I am with the Secureline markers?
	I would appreciate any comments.
	Thanks so much,
