[Histonet] low signal for long post fixation

Dear all,

I have mouse brain tissue perfused with PFA 4% and post fixed in formol 10%
for periods between 2 month and 1 year. I cut them on vibratome (30um) and
I made inmunohistochemistry and beta galactosidase to check senescence.
My problem is that I have less signal on positive controls if postfixation
on formol was longer.

There is a way to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance for your reply
