Has anybody used any other vendors to get their tape besides Sakura?  We
have tried Klinipath Tape, and found our machine had trouble handling it.  I
know that Mercedes Medical has contacted me regarding their product.  Is
anybody using something different, and how have your results been?  Did you
need to make any changes regarding how much xylene was dispensed?

Thanking you in advance...
