Exosomes are involved in many disease processes. As messengers, exosomes may contain useful biomarkers and have become a key area of interest in research. Due to the small size of exosomes (generally <250 nm), there are limited methods available with which to study them. The development of methodologies and high-throughput systems to distinguish exosomes from various biological fluids is a crucial step in progressing this research.

Utilizing the small particle detection capability (FSC from a 405 nm laser) of the ZE5 Cell Analyzer, we show detection of exosomes directly as well as captured on beads.

Included in the presentation is instrument setup for direct detection using the unique dual triggers on the ZE5 Cell Analyzer.
