Several years ago, a researcher used a marker on cassettes that bleed off
during the tissue processing. He was horrified at losing the material
naturally. Somehow, he mentioned it to someone who knew someone,
etc....that forensic labs have a means to treat or xray materials to
"see" where ink HAD been. I don't know how but it worked. Thought I would
mention it .  It sure beat discarding irretrievable tissues.
