Upcoming abcam Webinar: Novel use of extracellular vesicles in the search for biomarkers


Wednesday, June 15, 2016
3pm-4pm CET / 2pm-3pm GMT / 9am-10am EST


There are many different types of extracellular vesicles (EVs). Different subpopulations of exosomes, microvesicles and apoptotic bodies have been found to vary in size, composition and intracellular origin.

Within the last decade, cell-secreted EVs have been isolated from most of the fluids of the body, with many laboratories from around the world showing that their composition of lipids, proteins, messenger and micro RNAs are cell-type specific and subject to changes in pathological scenarios. As a result, EVs have been widely studied as a biological source to unravel low invasive biomarkers for predicting, diagnosing and monitoring diseases.
However, despite the many technological advances for the isolation of and analysis of EVs, there is still a lack of resources for transferring the basic knowledge acquired into useful clinical data.
This webinar will cover:

  • Our knowledge of EVs within a diagnostic environment
  • Transfer of the application of EVs into a clinical environment
  • A comparison of clinical-friendly EVs enrichment methods
