Thanks, Martin.  I'll pass this info on to the folks at FAMU.  We did find one supposed source in Europe, but their American "partner" claims NOT to work with them!!!

Hi John,

There likely are a number of European suppliers that ship to the USA, but for now I've verified just one; please see
https://www.carlroth.com/en/en/search?text=Euparal

In case there is any problem with an order: The contact person for North America in the company's export department is Mr. Wolfgang Treffinger - w.treffinger@carlroth.de

Best of luck,

I've just learned that BioQuip in the USA no longer sells Euparal.  Does anyone know if there's anywhere else to obtain Euparal either in the USA or shipped to the USA?
