For decades, Ficoll and Percoll products have been used in density gradient centrifugation to isolate different types of cell populations from a variety of sample sources. Cell isolation and cell culture techniques are vital for studying cell structure, function and differentiation, as well as for the production of biologics. For anchorage-dependent cells, microcarriers can provide high-yield cell cultures by allowing cells to grow on the surface of the microcarrier beads.
