Isolation of Extracellular Vesicles: Latest Advances and Challenges
March 4, 2014
10:00am EST / 9:00am CST / 7:00am PST
Attend this live one-hour webinar with Q&A.
Presented by:Winston Patrick Kuo, Ph.D., Advisory Board member for Scientific Advisory Board of Exosomics and HansaBioMed and Editor in Chief of the Journal Exosomes and Microvesicles
What You Will Learn:
Overview of EV current isolation methods
Isolation of sub-population of extracellular vesicles
Update on EV isolation throughput
Advances in EV sample preparation have not kept pace with advances in downstream analytic techniques such as dPCR and NGS, and the full potential of applying analytical methods for genomics and proteomic profiling to the detection of clinically relevant biomarkers shuttled by circulating EVs has yet to be realized. There is an urgent need for more streamlined, reliable and reproducible EV isolation approaches so that all downstream studies in the field of EVs can be more standardized and efficient. In this webinar, we will discuss the latest advances in methods regarding isolation methods as well as their advantages and disadvantages and justification in their support and the challenges that they encounter.
