Re: [Histonet] Leica slide writer - problems??


Hi all. I have used a lot of different slides on it too. The best ones I have found are the Starfrost clipped corner slides by Mercedes. The ink looks great and they don't get "stuck" Great price too!

Hi all-  we have a Leica and I have tried different slides. here is my take on
what works and doesn't:
>Starfrost Plus or non-plus (German) don't work too well- the pink
frosted slides especially - the ink wipes off- the green is better (why?), the
white is ok.
>Unifrost, non charged, by Ever Scientific (VWR) works well
>Super Up-Rite by Richard Allen, non-charged - terrible! bleeds and you
can't read it
>Colormark Plus by Thermo Sci. for labeling instruments - works Beautifully
- this is the one I will go with in future orders!
