RE: Cassette Labelers?

Hi Amy,
	We've been using a cassette writer for a number of years, the
MicroWriter, ?produced and sold in the UK by Raymond A Lamb Ltd. It will
operate as either a 'stand alone' (run from a PC) or interfaced with the lab
computer system. Which particular systems it will interface with, you would
have to check with them  (no doubt they will say "any system" ) We have yet
to link it to our new computer system ( Telepath 2000 ), but based on past
experience with our previous system it may be quite slow. We've always
preferred to use it as a PC based system. It's very easy to use and the
cassettes are clearly labelled. The cassettes are loaded in hoppers and the
labelling is by means of a heated stylus and heat sensitive foil tape. The
results are permanent ( as far as we can tell ).
	Hope this helps,

Another issue revisited...  Recommendations on cassette labelers?  Do they
interface with your current computer system and automatically label the
cassettes based on a set quantity?  Do you have to key in the number?  Any
info will be very helpful!
