Density Gradient Centrifugation

density gradient centrifugation tube

Density gradient ultracentrifugation (DGUC) is a centrifuge-based technique for providing superior purification of viral vectors (e.g., isolating full AAV particles from partial and empty capsids), along with other materials (such as plasmid DNA) in gene therapy production workflows. DGUC results in a layered gradient based on the density of materials in the original sample.
