Use of triethylamine to elute phage

I have a protocol from a paper for immuno-panning using Nunc's
immunotube. For the phage elution, triethylamine is used to incubate for
10 min, followed by the addition of certain amount of 1 M Tris-HCl, pH
7.4. I am wondering anyone using triethylamine for this purpose, and what
is the mechanism of its use.
