RE: [Histonet] marking blocks and slides

From:"Ant Swensson"

   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
   it out.

   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.
