Hi Francesca! I used Lubrol PX for some years (for potassium channel solubilisation)
until Sigma stopped selling it. Eventually, I found that Boehringer Mannheim
sell exactly the same detergent, except that they call it Thesit. In fact this
is actually better because it has been purified to remove oxidising impurities
(e.g. peroxides) which can be a problem with some proteins.
Hope this helps!
