Filling of density gradient tubes
Density gradient centrifugation is frequently used to separate
different cell types or cell organelles, ribosomes or DNA from
crude cellular extracts. The CUSTOMIZE mode permits gentle
and fast building of density step gradients. To avoid stirring up
the different layers, dispensing starts gently at a low flow rate
and then ramps up to the target speed. This allows filling density
gradient tubes gentle and faster than if carried out manually.
