CHAPS Zwitterionic, is a non-denaturing surfactant derived from cholic acid. The primarily use of CHAPS is in solubilization and purification of membrane proteins and other macromolecules. It can be removed from gels or protein solutions by dialysis across a membrane. It combines the features of bile salts and N-alkyl sulfobetaine. CHAPS behaves as a weak charged cation when in salt, but when in water or buffer it reacts as a nonionic surfactant. This product is 10% sterile-filtered solution in water of the Zwitterionic detergent CHAPS.
