Triton X-114 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.

For added safety when opening glass ampules, consider using our Ampule Breakers, which are disposable safety devices that protect the fingers when breaking open a glass ampule.
