Automated tool for isolation of intact extracellular vesicles with near-single-vesicle resolution coupled with in-line characterization
Header image provided by Stony Brook University.

Background

Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are sub-micron sized membranous vesicles secreted by most cell types and wind up circulating in body fluids such as blood and seminal plasma. In the past decade, EVs have gained huge attention for their prognostic and diagnostic potential, as well as their drug delivery prospects. However, progress has been hindered by the lack of a system that efficiently purify EVs from complex biological samples such as blood and seminal plasma.

Advantages

-Novel column composition provides highest resolution of EV purification on market -Novel approach for EV quantification and size determination -Provides through automation rigor and reproducibility of EV isolation and characterization

Application

- R&D - Pharmaceutics - Diagnostics - Clinics
