Density Gradient Ultracentrifugation (DGUC)

How can I prepare consistent density gradients for reproducibly purifying samples via ultracentrifugation?

Sapphire vs. Quartz

Sapphire windows provide better data than quartz windows for high speed AUC applications, such as peptides and small molecules.
The Optima AUC instrument can detect samples based on UV-vis absorbance as well as refractive index.
