Hi.  I work with a Shandon Citadel 2000 and I (try to) process rat and mouse
tissues (liver, lung, spleen, kidney, brain, heart).  The livers and spleens
that I process are consistently very dry.  This is my procedure: 24 hours in
10% neutral buffered formalin, store in 70% reagent alcohol, 20min in 80%
reagent alcohol, 2X 20min in 95% reagent alcohol, 3X 20min in 100% reagent
alcohol, 3X 20min in Propar (Xylene substitute), 2X 20min in paraffin
(Paraplast Plus).  I'd like to fix this problem with the tissues being
