I don't know what your heating method is but you might want to try a gentler one than you're using. Try a steamer or pressure cooker or if you don't have those, try bringing your slides and buffer just up to a simmer in a microwave, then transfer them to a 93-95 degree water bath. The buffer won't boil this way and you may have better luck with tissue adherence.

I use Citrate buffer (PH 6.0) at 95-98#186# for 10 min as HIER. However this
method cause severe damage in some sections and other are completly lost. In
a paper the authors used 14% EDTA at 65#186# C overnight.
I would like if someone help me about this problem and if I is a good choice
using citrate incubation overnight .
