RE: [Histonet] marking blocks and slides
We were using Statmark pens for a while (admittedly before I arrived
here) and were having a great experience with them, until we got a pen
that came completely off in the processing. Since then, I can't get
anyone to use a pen (although I have proved by using both pen and
pencil on blocks that the pens are ok) and am stuck using a pencil.
I'm suprised how the Sharpie (which I can remove from just about
anything by using alcohol) can survive processing. I'll have to test

use Sharpie brand industrial fine point marker to write on our blocks
and slides. The marker goes through the processing and staining with
no problems. These markers can be bought at office supply stores or
maybe even at your local Wal-Mart, KMart etc. and are less expensive.
