dried specimens

From:jay cheung <firekirin@hotmail.com>

Hi, dear histonetters:

My name is Jay and I am quite new to the area of histology.  I just 
processed some rat tissues and I found that some of the tissues were really 
dry.  I used a Fisher Histomatic Tissue Processor Model 166A for tissue 
processing.  I wonder what are the common possible causes for the dry 
specimens!  Also I would really appreciate it if someone can be so kind to 
provide me a protocol for tissue fixation, processing and infiltration 
procedures that work for the automatic processors.  Thank you so much for 
your help!
