Our lab is in France, and we get ExGen 500 from Euromedex, which is based in 
Eastern France. They may be able to help you find a distributor nearer to 
you. Their fax number is (33) 3 88 18 07 22 and they also have a web site at Recently, I have switched over to FuGene6 from 
Boehringer Mannheim which I find works a lot better than ExGen for my cells 
(HuH7) and you may want to try that out as well. It is more expensive volume 
to volume than ExGen, but you use five times less of the reagent than ExGene, 
and less DNA as well.
