Marking pens Thank you....
|From:||Tracy Bergeron <TBergeron@criver.com>, TBergeron@criver.com|
Thanks for all your responses on marking pens. What I neglected to
mention is that we are currently using the Shur/mark pens. We have not
had too luck with them. I have found we go through way to many of them,
mainly due to the tip getting trashed. I honestly think that the reason
we go through so many is that our slides are very rough, which wears away
the pen tip very quickly. I have recently tried using pencil on the
slides (which is how I have always labeled slides before this job),
unfortunately the roughness of the slides again has caused a problem. The
pencil did not stay on well, and rubbed almost completely off during
coverslipping.. I was using a type of mechanical #2 pencil I have used
before with no problems...
I would love to try different brands of slides, but currently changing
slides is not an option... sigh..
I have totaled the responses I got just in case anyone was interested:
Shur/Mark : 4
Thanks again I appreciate the info.
