I've used the tissue-tek marking pencils for 20 years on both cassettes and
slides. I've never had a problem with them. The pencil never has come off or
left an artifact from lead on the slides. I was trained with them at A.F.I.P. in
the Lee Luna days.

	Hello everybody in the land of knowledge:
	   I have a question that really needs an answer, what type of marking
	are in use in various labs for labeling cassettes.
	  In my lab pens by Secureline are in use, but have a very short life
	Even with careful covering, they dry out very fast. Any suggestions.??
	situation is the source of much frustration.
	   Is there something better out there at a reasonable cost.??
	   Your help would be very much appreciated in advance.
