How to Make Successful Measurements of Extracellular Vesicles and Other Biological Nanoparticles

Franklin Monzon, PhD
Co-Founder, Spectradyne LLC

Free measurements of your nanoparticle samples are available by appointment, in room B139, before and after this seminar.
Contact Dr. Monzon if interested: franklin.monzon@spectradynellc.com.

Abstract
Extracellular Vesicles (EVs) are of increasing interest to scientists due to their great promise as biomarkers and therapeutic agents. In order to develop EV-based solutions, accurate quantification of the size and concentration of the EVs is critical. However, quantification of deep submicron particles in liquid is challenging, especially when dealing with the high concentration and high polydispersity typical of EVs. Because conventional light scattering-based instruments suffer from sensitivity limitations in connection with the small size and high transparency of biological nanoparticles, orthogonal measurement techniques are necessary to help researchers draw correct conclusions about their EV mixtures. In this lecture, Dr. Monzon will review the EV measurement challenge and present data from Spectradyne’s non-optical method based on Microfluidic Resistive Pulse Sensing (MRPS).

LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED!
