We are a research lab and don't generate near the amount of specimens that a
clinical lab would. We were happy to get an automatic stainer and coverslipper!

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.
