Density Gradient Fractionation System

For gentle isolation of cellular ribosomes, RNA, DNA, and organelles

 

Teledyne Isco's Density Gradient Fractionation System forms density gradients in centrifuge-ready condition. Samples can be loaded immediately onto prepared gradients and spun in a centrifuge. Once the spin is complete, the separated components are recovered in separate collection tubes.

 

Standard features:

  • Prepare gradients and use immediately without overnight refrigeration
  • Hands-off fraction separation
  • Seals and punctures the bottom of most common centrifuge tubes
  • Zone broadening and mixing are minimized with upward bulk flow
  • Detect all popular wavelengths
