Sea-bird Scientific no longer directly sells and ships Triton-X. Since January 4th,2021 Triton-X has been banned in the EU due to a key ingredient being a known endocrine disrupter.  TERGITOL is a non-ionic surfactant which can be used as a substitute for Triton-X. It can be purchased at Sigma Aldrich.  The surfactant is supplied in 100% strength and will need to be diluted. If neither surfactant is available, vinegar or a diluted bleach solution can be used as a substitute.
