RE: [Histonet] markers

From:Margaret Blount

My only word of advice is to go back to the stone age and include a card in
the cassette with a pencil label on it. It is extra work but until you have
a satisfactory answer it would save you a lot of heartache. This is a very
alarming occurence and should be taken up with the manufacturers - Patients'
lives are at risk! I think the histonet community would be justified in
lobbying the manufacturers of cassettes (and markers)to ensure this cannot
happen again. What do other histotechs think?

Meanwhile, Debbie, good luck with your search for an answer to your current

Subject: [Histonet] markers

We have had a sudden problem with our markers.
All of a sudden the ink is washing off of our cassettes.
We had that problem a while back and found out it was our cassettes.
The surface was too smooth.  But we currently use two different vendors
for our cassettes.  We have tried several different markers but the same
is happening.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

We have tried secureline, staedtler, and moist mark.

Thank You in advance.
