Elution Countercurrent Distribution

A thin-layer countercurrent distribution apparatus was modified so that it can be utilised for the single withdrawal technique [1], here called elution countercurrent distribution.

Thylakoid membrane vesicles from spinach chloroplasts were subjected to the elution countercurrent distribution. A gradient of NaCl was used in the eluting upper phase to elute the different fractions in the order of their affinity for the moving upper phase.
