They are talking about the common Indian ink, nothing else and you will find it, as you write, in a office supplies store.

Dear everyone,
when I was working in pathology gross section lab, we used black dye (and blue, green etc,"Tusche" in german) for orientation of the gross section specimens. We fixed the dye with Bouin's solution. Now I was asked for this dye, but I don't know if this was the "conventional" india ink you can buy for drawing in paper shops or was this a "special dye". I don't found anything in commen pathology supplier catalogs and can't reach anyone of my former colleagues who might know.
Can you help me out of this confusion?!

Thanks a lot (Vielen Dank)
