Catalog #6372A, Euparal-Mounting-Medium Catalog #6372C, Euparal-Essence

The manufacturer of Euparal and Euparal Essence has retired and we are no longer able to supply this product. The manufacturer’s formula is a trade secret and to the best of our knowledge it was not shared with anyone.

There are substitutes available but each type has different qualities. Those that we offer as replacements are:

6370 Slide Mounting Medium - Limited supply. A resin dissolved in Xylene. Similar to Canadian Balsam.

6371A PVA Mounting medium - Imparts a clearing action similar to Euparal in mounted specimens.  Used the same as Euparal but water based as opposed to solvent based.

Euparal mounting medium is specifically intended for wholemounts of small-bodied insects such as mosquito larvae, aphids, or thrips taken directly from 95% alcohol. It is a permanent synthetic substitute for Canada Balsam, but imparts a slight clearing action. Packed in amber glass bottles.

*Please note that some chemicals used in the formulation of this product might react with the rubber stopper used in the dropping pipette, when provided.  A polyseal cap has been provided to extended storage.

Euparal essence is used as a thinning agent for Euparal mounting medium.

Euparal and euparal essence are flammable and can be shipped only by UPS or FedEx ground service and only to destinations within the U.S.
