Hi folks,

      We are currently using Evergreen multi-compartment cassettes for our
Rodent GI tract samples, but are having issues with the lightness of the
writing.  It doesn't matter which brand of marker we use the writing comes
out either very light, or washes partly off during processing.   My
assumption is it has to do with the type of plastic, which is a hard
plastic similar to that used in the Sakura cassettes.  So I am in search of
a brand that is made with a softer plastic, similar to that used to make
the Surgipath cassettes.

      Hopefully that makes sense.
