General description

Triton X-100 is a common non-ionic surfactant and emulsifier which is often used in biochemical applications to solubilize proteins. It is considered a comparatively mild detergent, non-denaturing, and is reported in numerous references as a routinely added reagent. It is utilized for lysing cells to extract protein and cellular organelles. It can also permeabilize the living cell membrane for transfection.

Application

Triton X-100 has been used:
  • for permeabilization of cells before techniques like indirect immunofluorescence and flow cytometry
  • As a component of lysis buffer used for homogenization of cells
  • As a component of blocking buffer in immunofluorescence staining
  • For the preparation of cells in double fluorescence staining

Biochem/physiol Actions

Widely used non-ionic surfactant for recovery of membrane components under mild non-denaturing conditions.

Features and Benefits

  • Suitable for Molecular Biology and Biochemical Research
  • Free from DNase, RNase, NICKase and protease
  • Tested to confirm low levels of heavy metal contamination, ensuring suitability for various applications.
  • High purity product for research applications
  • Tested for the presence of Anionic and Cationic traces
