General description

IGEPAL® CA-630 is a nonionic, non-denaturing detergent suitable for solubilization, isolation and purification of membrane protein complexes. It is chemically indistinguishable from Nonidet P-40.

Application

IGEPAL® CA-630 has been used:
  • as a component of grinding buffer along with lithium dodecyl sulphate, tris-HCl, EDTA, NaCl, sodium deoxycholate, dithiothreitol and thiourea in RNA extraction process
  • along with Tris- HCl in incubation of Tachyzoites cultured in vero cells
  • as a component of nuclear extract buffer D+ containing HEPES, glycerol, KCl and EDTA for gel shift analysis
  • as a component of PI buffer along with NaH2PO4 to wash slides in FISH (fluorescence in situ hybridization) procedure
  • for solubilizing and isolation of membrane proteins

Packaging

50, 100, 500 mL in poly bottle

Other Notes

Nonionic, non-denaturing detergent

Quality

Chemically indistinguishable from Nonidet P-40, which is no longer commercially available.
