    Single-step Isolation of EVs by Size-Exclusion Chromatography

    AMC Researchers demonstrate basis of new product for EV community. Isolation of extracellular vesicles from plasma is a challenge due to the presence of proteins and lipoproteins. Isolation of vesicles using differential centrifugation or density-gradient ultracentrifugation results in co-isolation of contaminants such as protein aggregates and incomplete separation of vesicles from lipoproteins, respectively.

    University of Leeds: Improved Microbubble generation may Enhance Pre-clinical Ultra-sound

    The properties and methods of production of micron sized, lipid stabilized bubbles of gas, known as 'microbubbles' (MBs) are being studied in detail using microfluidics by Sally Peyman and colleagues at the University of Leeds. The work was presented at the annual Izon Science research symposium held at Oxford University earlier last month.

    Jobs: Research Associate (Cardiff University)

    This 3 year post-doctoral position is fully funded by the British Heart Foundation to study adipocyte-derived extracellular vesicles and their influence on vascular function.

    The work forms part of a vascular biology research group at the Wales Heart Research Institute, Cardiff University School of Medicine, led by Dr Philip James focussing on the isolation, detection and characterisation of extracellular vesicles to study fundamental aspects of cardiovascular disease. Previous experience in these areas would be a significant advantage.

    Anabiotec: Detailed Detection of Protein Aggregates in Biopharmaceutical Production

    Protein aggregation has become a focus for Belgium-based contract laboratory Anabiotec, as it is a key concern in biopharmaceutical production. This is due not only to the risk associated with changes to a products quality or pharmacokinetics, but most importantly because of the hazard of inducing an unwanted immune response, which is more likely to occur with particles in the subvisible and submicron range.
