You will see an amazing difference in your tissue specimens if you process
a laboratory microwave instead of a routine tissue processor.  Using 
microwave processing procedures the exposure times in alcohol and paraffin 
are greatly reduced and clearants are not used at all.  The tissues are 
normally much easier to section and in most cases you won't need to soak 

Laboratory microwaves suitable for processing are distributed by several 
different manufacturers (Thermo-Shandon, Richard Allan Scientific, Hacker 
Instruments and TBS, Inc).  I would be happy to answer any questions you 
might have.
