What is cell fractionation?


Answer by  sanityrose (2664)

Cell fractionation is a biological technique used to break down the components of a cell. The cell is broken into micro forms, or the smallest methods of scientific measurements. With cell fractionation the cells are separated into the nucleus, microsomes , mitochondria, and soluble fractions.

Cell fractionation is the process by which a solution with cells becomes separated into distinct layers by centrifugaton as a result of the different masses of the components.

Cell fractionation is a method used to purify a particular cellular compartment. This usually consists of three steps: 1) Disruption of cells and liberation of organelles, 2) Macro Filtration, and 3) Purification of your desired organelle.

Cell fractionation is the process by which cell organelles are separated out by the basis of weight from a cell sample.


Answer by  mahamuni (11)

This is the term used in the field of cell biology, means the separation of cell organelles (biological cellular components) for various purposes after homogenization (grinding), filtration and purification.


Answer by  MelindaS (1694)

Cell fractionation is when you remove parts of a cell from the rest of the cell, such as removing organelles. Scientists can do this by using a device called a centrifuge. It separates the parts of the cell by spinning, and those parts can then be studied separately by filtering them apart.
