JBScreen Detergents
JBScreen Detergents can be used throughout the protein purification process or can be added afterwards by dialysis or ion-exchange chromatography (detergent exchange). Detergent exchange can be vital for obtaining well-diffracting membrane-protein crystals [1].
JBScreen Detergents is also valuable for additive screening with detergents and detergent mixtures [2,3] in combination with the JBScreen Membrane. This combination will enable you to screen a broad range of crystallization conditions, while concentrating on the most successful detergents - and therefore making crystallization screening of membrane proteins much more efficient and less time consuming.

24 detergents are supplied as stock solutions at 5 or 10 times the reported CMC (Critical Micellar Concentration), with 100 or 200 Ál per compound. The recommended final detergent concentration in a hanging-drop experiment (prior to equilibration) is 1 to 3 x the CMC.
