I have also been told that some museums will not accept slides that have been mounted using anything other than Canada Balsam.

According to a recent note on the BioQuip catalog, Euparal is no longer available.
I checked the website for the manufacturer, ASCO Laboratories, Mancherster, England, and it is now inactive.
