  I'm somewhat surprised that many labs are still handwriting blocks and 
slides. If you are using a LIS, can it integrate printing blocks and 
slides? Is the cost too high to add the printing capability? The cost of 
equipment is so cheap compared with one lawsuit.

It would also reduce the stress of loosing your job over a labeling 
mistake. Just seems like a win win for everyone.
