[Histonet] Needle biopsies in Embedding Center

Does anyone have experience with the length of time needle biopsies can sit in the embedding center at 60 degrees C, without doing any harm to the tissue. The biopsies are processed in sponges and generally run on an overnight run in a VIP.  I am concerned that a prolonged period of time may cause some cell distortion or dry/cook the tissue.
