Inorganic salts

Ionic gradient media, comprised of concentrated heavy metal salts, are almost exclusively used for isopycnic separations of nucleic acids. Cesium chloride and cesium sulfate are the most widely used heavy metal salts with gradient densities of up to 1.91 g/cm3 . Other useful salts include sodium iodide, sodium bromide and the rubidium salts. The steepness and shape of the ionic and non-viscous with high osmolarities. It should be kept in mind that the density of the sample is highly dependent on the sample’s hydration, which in turn depends on the dehydration power of the ionic gradient media.
