I think the use in a processor becomes a local culture.  I think
everyone in my community does it (someone spread the word), so now we
all do.  I believe that we are all putting it in the last alcohol.  It
really makes facing a block on minute pieces a whole lot easier.  We
found marking the tissue directly tedious, and it didn't persist as well
in the processing.
  Because there is often so little visible material in our FNA cell
blocks, we mark the histogel pellet with Davidson ink, and when the tech
has just faced off the ink, he/she knows its time to start collecting
