Hi Trey -
It's funny you should post a question about these labels as we here in
our lab were just discussing them this morning. We have 3 older and 1
new DAKO autostainers. I had worked with a rep from Shamrock labels and
she custom made some labels for our older autostainer [Seymour] use.
They were around $11/roll [Shamrock's price] instead of $90.00/roll
[DAKO's price]. They're not solvent resistant and they don't have the
protective sheet of plastic on them, but I put them on after I do the
staining so that's OK with me[hence the lower price]. As you can
imagine, we do quite a volume of slides with 4 machines, AND we're in
research so our dollars are quite tight [everybody's dollars are tight
these days]. Well, when we rec'd our new DAKO machine I was surprised to
see a change in the Seymour labeling system.... It seems that it's been
re-designed with a sensor so you have to use their labels. Now you're
telling me that they're not available.... What's up with this? I'm still
working with the Shamrock rep to try and figure out a new label for use
with this sensor containing Seymour labeler. If you come up with an
alternative please let me know. For those of you who want the Shamrock
info please e-mail me off the list, thanks.

Subject: [Histonet] Dako's Seymour Slide Labels
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII
I tried to place an order with Dako for Seymour slide labels and printer
supplies and Dako claims to be out of this product and can not provide
me with an expected ship date or alternate vendor. Has anyone found
an alternate source for the printer supplies and slide labels to use
with the Dako Seymour slide labeler. Thanks.
