CalBiochem sells something called the "Detergent Test Kit"
(catalog # 263450) which includes 1g each of hexyl-, heptyl-,
octyl-, nonyl- and decyl-GP and dodecyl-maltoside.  It sells
for $150 and their phone number is (800) 854-3417.

I have tried all of these detergents and have found the hexyl-OG
to work best with the protein I work on.  Of course, you should always check
that the detergent does not affect the activity of your protein.
