VWR/Merck/BDH sell a Glycerol based product called Molyfex which does this
job very well.

I work with lots of crunchy rodent tissue and sometimes will soak in 10%
sterile glycerol. Might want to give that a try. I only use sterile when I
prepare the glycerol so it keeps on the shelf without growing things!!!

We had a prostate needle biopsy today (again!) that was very crunchy and
hard to cut.  Our other biopsies were fine.  One of our pathologists heard
something about re-hydrating tissue with glycerin.  Does anyone know what
this technique might be?
