Tween-20 and Triton X-100 are often used to treat tubing, equipment, etc. to prevent crypto from sticking to 
surfaces and to minimize crypto attaching  to debris in environmental test samples. My question is: does anyone 
have experience using other detergents? Have any studies been done comparing different types and 
concentrations of detergents or combinations of detergents for the above purpose?
