Yes, that's the reason we chose pencil's. We would have so many different 
marking pens around, some would wash off or smudge. One of the bad ones 
would end up in a drawer and get used later on down the line giving us a 
major headache. So pencil it is if we ever needed to. We have a cassette 
marker. But if it broke the handy dandy pencil would be our sure known 
tool of choice.

RE: [Histonet] Cassette Marking


I would say you have quite a choice!  For the longest time, we had so much
trouble with so many pens, we went to the pencil for the cassettes which 
are the
best.  But we still needed pens for the slides; that's when we switched to
StatLab.  We still use the pencil for the cassettes.

If you HAVE to manually mark cassettes - what are you using? Cassette pens 
Pencils ? What is the rest of the world doing?

Anything else on the market?
