Fellow histonetters,

We've been having problems with our slide labeling.  We currently use pencil
to label them.  However, after continuous handling of the slides, the lead
eventually starts to fade which is no big surprise.  At one time we tried
using those Histoprep pens made by Fisher but they often dried out before we
got a decent amount of use from them.  Did we just have a bad lot or has
anyone else had problems with these pens?  Also, can anyone suggest a
different type of pen that withstands the staining procedure?

Thanks in advance,
