My idea is that you try to use isotope labelled RNA probes, because you
will probably have problems when using DIG-labelled probes. For example the 
penetration of DIG-probes into tissue-sections will be difficult. This is 
probably due to a big size of DIG-label when you compare the size with 
isotope label.

Please write some comments if you have used DIG-label with tissue samples
with or without success.
