Description and Specification


Formulation n-Dodecyl-beta-D-maltoside
Description n-Dodecyl-beta-Maltoside
Quantity 1g
Properties Nonionic

The water soluble nonionic detergent is most often used for the isolation of hydrophobic membrane proteins. Multiple studies have shown that n-Dodecyl-β-D-maltoside is a gentle detergent that is often able to preserve protein activity better than many commonly used detergents, including NP-40, CHAPS and Octyl-β-glucoside.


  • Lipid-like nonionic detergent
  • Especially useful for isolating and stabilizing hydrophobic membrane proteins
  • Preserves activity of membrane protein better than most detergents
  • High-purity compound with low UV absorptivity
