Just 2 general considerations:

EDTA (without trypsin) is more gentle and could be sufficient

flushing the TC dishes with gelatine solution (or more expensive: traeting
with a solution of collagen (eg extracted from rat tails) in diluted acetic
scid, followed by evaporation in vacuo) sometimes helps, too
