  • Gradients can either be preformed or spontaneously generated by centrifugation at moderate speeds in an angle-head rotor
  • Low viscosity of media allows cell isolations on preformed gradients to be completed in only a few minutes using low centrifugal forces (200 to 1000xG)
  • Iso-osmotic gradients throughout cover a range of densities up to 1.3g/mL
  • Nontoxic, almost chemically inert and does not adhere to membranes
  • Adjustable to physiological ionic strength and pH; can be buffered within pH range 5.5 to 10.0 without change in properties
  • Percoll is a silica sol with nondialyzable PVP coating; 15-30nm dia. bead size
