Hi Karen (in Omaha),

We normally use pencil and and a computer generated label for our slides,
however I tested the marker in my lab today and it worked very well.  It
resisted washing off from slides that were placed in methanol and then
stained with Wright-Giemsa.  Some slides were processed through xylene and
ethanols in a "dip" set-up and the rest were placed on our H&E stainer
(platen-style).  We use yellow "Colorfrost" and "Plus" slides from Fisher
(Erie Scientific,  I believe).  We just started using the Shur/Mark pen
about 6 months to a year ago.  Has it been a while since you tried them? 
Maybe they made a formulation change?  I label my slides a few blocks
ahead, so maybe they had more drying time before they hit the water?  I
don't know what the difference may be, sorry!
