[Histonet] Ventana Slide Labels

I need some help from those of you who work with Ventana stainers.  

The Ventana equipment requires the use of Ventana slide labels.  You can't
just stick your LIS slide label on the slide and expect the Ventana
equipment to read the slide barcode and perform the required stain (yes, I
am assuming an interface is in place).  On the other hand, have any of you

1.  placed the LIS slide label on the back side of the slide, or
2.  Overlapped the LIS slide label with the Ventana slide label such that
you can still read both the LIS and the Ventana barcodes.

I have heard conflicting answers from multiple Ventana representatives as to
whether one or both of the aforementioned mechanisms work.

I appreciate your time.
