I would recommend you try to embed them on edge.
Even if very small, you will be surprised how many are correctly

We are having a heck of a time orienting GI biopsies but esophageal
biopsies in particular, during embedding. If anyone could share their
secret for getting these tiny specks of semi-transparent tissue
oriented, we would greatly appreciate it.
