Triton X-114 Detergent Solution

Provides purity, quality and stability in convenient 10% solutions.

Surfact-Amps Triton X-114 Detergent Solution. Thermo Scientific Surfact-Amps X-114 Detergent Solution is highly-purified Triton™ X-114 detergent stabilized and supplied as a 10% solution in 10mL glass ampules.

This is an easy-to-use 10% (w/v) solution of purified Triton™ X-114 detergent for use in routine and high-demand protein research methods and molecular biology techniques. Triton X-114 is a nonionic polyoxyethylene surfactant that is most frequently used as a component of cell lysis buffers. In certain conditions, this detergent phase-separates in aqueous solutions, a property that has been used to separate hydrophilic and hydrophobic (membrane) proteins. 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, ensuring their stability and eliminating the accumulation of peroxides and degradation products.


  • Triton X-114 – a nonionic detergent for use in various protein methods
  • Accurate – precise 10% detergent solution in ultrapure water
  • Easy-to-use – solution is simple to dispense and dilute for use
  • Exceptionally pure – less than 1.0µeq/mL peroxides and carbonyls
  • Stable – packaged in glass ampules under inert nitrogen gas
