Wouldn't this be the end of all slideprinters? 
I can't imagine hopping up before each slide to label it. We also do
prelabeling for 10 slides before cutting.

Betreff: [Histonet] Pre-labeling glass slides

Recently, I heard of a slide mislabeling that occurred in another histo lab
that they determined to be caused by pre-labeling slides before actual use
at the microtome.  This lab said that if the slides would of been labeled
simultaneously (per their policy) as the blocks being cut, the mislabeling
would of been prevented.  My lab currently pre-labels all of slides before
cutting a sequence of 10-20 blocks, which I thought was common practice.  My
question is, what is common practice?  Do other labs have policies
forbidding pre-labeling of glass slides?
