Detergent, equivalent to Nonidet P-40.Triton|r X-100 is used as a non-ionic detergent, emulsifier and dispersing agent. It is useful for isolation of membrane proteins. It is also used in electrophoresis. It is an active ingredient in influenza vaccine (Fluzone). It finds applications in the dispersion of carbon materials for soft composite materials and restricting colony expansion in Aspergillus nidulans in microbiology. Further, it is an active ingredient in homemade vinyl record cleaning fluids together with distilled water and isopropyl alcohol.
