  • ASB-16 is a zwitterionic detergent
  • The detergent is a sulfobetaine with a C16 alkyl tail
  • Very efficient for solubilizing proteins for 2D analysis
  • Optimal solubility achieved in urea-thiourea mixturres and not in urea alone
  • Exhibits better solubilization results than CHAPS
  • ASB-16 has been shown to solubilize membrane proteins that were previously undetected
