You can always reach out to your QIAGEN rep for a discounted price offer.

I believe the reason for the limited size of the tissue is to ensure the reagent can penetrate the entire tissue section in-time to stabilize the DNA. When the tissue is a huge chunk, you tend to get variability in your data as the outer edges of the tissue stabilization while the inner core doesn't get penetrated in time to prevent degradation.
