bacterial cell densities

Does anyone know of any refs for methods to determine the density of 
bacterial cells? Our research group thought that density gradient 
centrifugation might work, but then what do we use as "standards" to be 
able to calculate the desity based on where the cells settle in the 
gradient? Also, any techniques that might not need ultracentrifugation 
would be preferrable.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
