NEW product range Virodex™: Superior replacements to Triton™ X-100 

Triton™ X-100 is used widely in the biopharmaceutical industry for virus inactivation and cell lysis applications. While the performance of Triton™ X-100 cannot be challenged, the detergent is associated with a number of disadvantages, with the product degrading to endocrine disrupting by-products, making it an aquatic reproductive toxin.1 It is also included on the European Chemical Agency’s candidate list of substances of very high concern of the REACH regulation (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals).2  

As a result, Triton™ X-100 alternatives have been developed3, including our newly launched product range, Virodex™, addressing the industry need to find a suitable replacement for viral inactivation and/or cell lysis in their bioprocessing applications.  

Watch our expert Dr. Kritika Bajaj discuss our product range in more detail and learn how Virodex™ could be the solution to your replacement requirement.
