We use marking ink from Statlab or Mercedes Medical.
After applying the ink to the tissue, we take weak acetic acid solution and blot it over the ink which helps it adhere.

What are labs using for "marking inks" for surgical pathology specimens?  I have been told that we are having problems with the product that we are currently using.  Thanks.
