We have no label maker - so the slides are labeled with a Securline Marker II from EMS - stays put through all treatments.
Prior to delivery, a paper label is printed and affixed to the slide over the hand-written label.

Subject: [Histonet] labeling pre-made slides

We use the Leica IPS to label our cytology slides, however, we do get quite a few slides from doctors who make smears and spray fix them before they come to us.  Unfortunately, they use pencil to label and this usually wipes off during staining and coverslipping.  Does anyone else receives slides like this and then how are they permanently labeled?  We would like to avoid going back to paper labels if at all possible.
Any advice or suggestion is appreciated
