Based on an average of 9-10 ethylene oxide units per molecule, the molecular weight of Triton X-100 is 625 g/mol.
This product is 100% active ingredient.
Typically, a 0.1 % solution of Triton X-100 is sufficient for lysing cells.
X100 does have UV absorbance at 280 nm, which will interfere with the UV determination of proteins.
Aqueous solutions of Triton X-100 are stable to autoclaving. At certain concentrations the solutions may be cloudy but dispersible above the cloud point. However, the solution should clear with stirring upon cooling.
