Hi LeRoy,

You may want to try  Bartels & Stout  in Bellevue, WA (425) 453-1705.  They
carried Leica Historesin embedding kits (I am told it's the same
formulation as Technovit 7100, but a different name) and mounting media
(sold separately).  Sorry I don't have any item numbers for the mounting
media powder and liquid, but they were around $70.00 and $32.00,
respectively.

I've also used the GMA formulation for embedding specimens to attach the
metal block holders and it works fine.

Sincerely,

Carla Aiwohi
