Thermo Scientific Surfact-Amps 20 Detergent Solution is highly-purified Tween*-20 detergent stabilized as a 10% solution in 10mL glass ampules or three sizes of HPDE-plastic bottles.
This is an easy-to-use 10% (w/v) solution of purified Tween*-20 detergent for use in routine and high-demand protein research methods and molecular biology techniques. Tween-20 is a nonionic polyoxyethylene surfactant that is most frequently added to PBS or TBS wash buffers for ELISA, Western blotting and other immunoassay methods. Surfact-Amps Detergent Solutions (10% w/v) provide unsurpassed purity, quality and stability. Unlike neat detergents, which are extremely viscous, Surfact-Amps 10% Solutions are easy to pipette and accurately dispense. The surfactant solutions are carefully prepared and packaged under nitrogen in glass ampules or non-leaching HPDE bottles, ensuring their stability and eliminating the accumulation of peroxides and degradation products.
