How old are your slides?  I have used slides stored at RT over one year
without any problems.  I have used slides stored at -20 that are 2-3 years
If you are having trouble getting old slides to FISH, you may try denaturing
them longer.  Our lab has found that occasionally an old batch of slides will
need to be denatured 2-3 times longer than normal.

Hope this helps,
