RE: [Histonet] markers

If you will be using the markers on slides as well as cassettes, make
sure you try them in acetone as well as through steam antigen retrieval
systems.  Some of them don't work in these situations.

I just recieved a sample PathPen from Pacific Southwest Lab Equipment
Inc.  I ran it through varying concentrations of EtOH and it didn't come
off, it's also supposed to be waterproof.  Their phone #: 866-429-0618. 
>From what I understand they are a fairly new company, maybe they would
be willing to send you a sample.  I haven't used it on cassettes, but it
might be worth a shot.

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
thing is happening.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

We have tried secureline, staedtler, and moist mark.

Thank You in advance.
