Standardisation of concentration measurements of extracellular vesicles for medical diagnoses

Project: EU project

Project Details


Improving measurementaccuracy for a new class of biomarker (extracellular vesicles) as a diagnostictool.

Extracellular vesicles(EV) are cell-derived particles in body fluids that have excellent potential asnext-generation biomarkers for early diagnosis of common diseases. Currently,there are no reliable methods for characterising EVs.

Project develops proceduresand reference materials to standardise all aspects involved in the detection of EVs by flow cytometry.

VTT MIKES optimises its atomic forcemicroscope for traceable size determination of EV reference materials andbiological test samples.
