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:
  • Along with Span® 80 and Tween® 80 in mineral oil for the preparation of oil-phase of microemulsions for PCR technique
  • As a component of NX buffer which is used to pool and break down the microemulsions after PCR cycling
  • In the blocking solution during immunocytochemistry procedure
  • During deglycosylation procedure
  • For membrane solubilization
  • For cell permeabilization
  • In decellularization of porcine heart valve tissue

Biochem/physiol Actions

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

Features and Benefits

  • BioXtra Grade product for your Cell Biology and Biochemical research
  • Non-ionic nondenaturing detergent
  • Superior wetting agent and emulsifier
  • Highly versatile surfactant
