Fixative for IHC

I have bene using 4% paraformaldehyde, to fix my cells, which are live
stained for Galactocerebreside-C and propidium iodide.  But I think the PF
is causing problems.  Most of the dead cells are washing off and I am
getting skewed restuls.  Can anyone suggest a different fixative?  Gal-C
is a lipid, so MetOH or EtOH are not ideal.

Ta muchly.
