Exosomes, extracellular vesicles that are released from cells, are found in numerous biological fluids – and are key players in cell-to-cell communication. Their role in research is expanding rapidly, as exosomes are found to play a part in a growing number of roles related to human development, maintaining health, aging, and disease.
Akadeum’s microbubble approach to separation represents a breakthrough in process improvement for rare target capture from large fluidic volumes, and can enable exosome capture from large-volume biological samples.
One such example is using functionalized microbubbles for exosome enrichment from urine samples, with the end goal of miRNA isolation for oncology.
Effective and efficient capture of exosomes from large volume samples (in this case, urine) has wide-ranging implications in enabling effective and efficient workflows that are easily integrated into existing protocols and procedures.
The details related to exosome capture using microbubbles are currently available under NDA. If you are interested in learning more, simply fill out the form below to get in touch with our Business Development team and start a conversation:
