[Disclaimer: I haven't used Menzel SuperFrost Plus slides but use VWR
with great success.]
I love the Vector ImmEdge pen, it is my favorite.
My facvorite used to be Zymed's as it was thinner and stayed on the
slide no matter what I did but they must have changed their formula
as I don't like it anymore and it comes off the slide now.
I find the trick is you must gently blow on the pap penned area for a
few seconds before putting back in PBS - to dry the pap-pen so to
speak. Otherwise it comes off.
