You should change your fixation schedules rather that your tissue processing schedules. That could be a sign of incompletely fixed tissues.

I have a question regarding tissue processing.   We do routine processing of
tissue where the surgery has been done the same day.   We have recently received
a request to do autopsy blocks and a few of the blocks appear to be
underprocessed and fairly soft appearing.   I was wondering if we need to change
the times in our processor for this and if so how much.   Our current processing
schedule is used for biopsies as well as larger specimens.
