Sodium dodecyl

Sodium dodecyl sulfate is an anionic surfactant, usually a mixture of sodium alkyl sulfates, mainly the lauryl, lowers surface tension of aqueous solutions, used as fat emulsifier, wetting agent, detergent in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and toothpastes, also as research tool in protein biochemistry.

Features of Sodium Dodecyl:
• Popular anionic detergent for a variety of protein methods
• Especially useful for denaturing polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE)
• Common component of cell lysis buffers

This lauryl-grade sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) is a popular anionic detergent for routine protein electrophoresis and cell lysis methods. The formulation is a mixture of several different alkyl sulfate chain lengths (C10 to C18).
