RE: Hello all; ink & Plastic???

From:"Blanch, Julie"

Hi Ian,
We are currently using a green dye to mark the proximal end of arteries and it does not come off during our plastic processing.  The dye we are using is called
The Davidson Marking System

It even has a warning on the bottle not to apply to living tissue because it is permanent and it will not come off.  Hope this helps.

Hi there, to all Plastic & Ground histologist.
Does marking ink for labelling tissue come off in any of the "cradle to grave" steps involve in Plastic processing, infiltration and embedding?
I need reccommendations on what type of ink to use.
Thanks and God bless
Have a safe & blessed weekend
