Exosome Quantification

In the past decade, exosomes have received much attention due to their potential applications in molecular biology, and biomedical fields. The accurate and reliable quantification of exosomes is crucial to better understand exosomes and their relationship with various diseases.

Exosome quantification mainly depends on their characteristic physical properties, such as size, mass, and density, or on membrane proteins presented on their surface. Creative Bioarray offers a range of options to meet most exosome quantitation demands. We provide reliable, and optimized tools at the most competitive price for quantitative analysis of exosomes in diverse biological samples such as plasma, urine, etc.

Here in Creative Bioarray, we provide a series of exosome quantification services listed as below, choose the exosome quantitation method that is best for your studies:

  • ELISA-based Immunoaffinity capture (IAC) assay
  • Nanoparticle tracking analysis (NTA)
  • Asymmetrical-flow field flow fractionation (AF4) coupled with multidetection assay
  • Dynamic light scattering (DLS) assay
  • Surface plasmon resonance (SPR) assay
