Exosomes are tiny, subcellular, membrane-bound vesicles, measuring 30-150 nm in diameter, that are released by almost all cell types. Exosomes can carry membrane and cellular proteins, as well as genetic materials that are representative of the cell of origin. Profiling various bio-molecules in exosomes may serve as useful biomarkers for a wide variety of diseases.
GenExosome’s Exosome Isolation Systems are designed to be used by researchers for biomarker discovery and clinical diagnostic development, as well as the advancement of targeted therapies. Currently, research kits and services are available to isolate exosomes or extract exosomal RNA/protein from serum/plasma, urine and saliva samples. GenExosome is seeking to decode proteomic and genomic alterations underlying a wide-range of pathologies, thus allowing for the introduction of novel non-invasive liquid biopsies. [Read more…]
