Octylthioglucoside (OTG)

Careful choice of detergents is maybe the most crucial factor when handling membrane proteins. Membrane proteins are in contact with lipidic membranes via large hydrophobic regions. Their extraction requires the use of detergents which possibly interfere with membrane protein structure and function. Different detergents can be optimal for extraction, purification, and crystallization steps.


We offer a range of high quality, crystallization-grade detergents at an attractive price. We aliquot our detergents so that they are convenient to use,  keep fresh and provide optimal performance.
