Our production does not utilize common surfactants (like SDS, Tween 20, Triton X-100) that can interfere with protein binding to particle surfaces. Polystyrene surfaces are very hydrophobic and adsorb proteins almost instantaneously. Our proprietary anionic surfactant does not interfere with the binding of proteins nor cause proteins to desorb from microparticle surfaces.
