In my hands, NP40 is more stringent than TX100 when used at the same percentages.
Triton X-100tm has a structure very similar to those of Igepal CA-630 and of Nonidet P-40 (no longer commercially available), and the names are sometimes reported as synonyms. However, Triton X-100 is slightly more hydrophilic than Igepal CA-630; these two detergents are NOT considered to be functionally interchangeable in most applications.
