Just a word of caution. Most of us use NP-40 to mean Nonidet P40.
This is basically the same as Triton X-100, except that it is a finer
cut from the fractional distillation used in the production process.
There is also a nonionic surfactant named Tergitol NP-40. Almost
no one uses it in biochemistry, but there is the possiblilty for
I hope this helps.
