We have had much better luck with HistoGel!  Give it a try.

Could somebody please provide me with a protocol for embedding tiny 
specimens in agar and then processing the agar block through ethanol and 
xylene and into paraffin.
My attempts so far have produced severely shrunken and hard lumps of 
unrecognisable agar.
Thanks in advance.
Regards,  Laurie.
