Product description

Exo-spin™ products provide a proven, rapid and reliable way of generating high quality purified exosomes suitable for a range of research applications.

Blood plasma and sera typically contain around 1 x 1012 exosomes/ml. Size exclusion chromatography (SEC), provides a superior to technique to purify exosomes from blood. Blood can be added directly onto the column or concentrated a little, if necessary, prior to application. Blood plasma has higher protein content than sera reducing the amount that can be loaded onto each column.

The EX02 Exo-spin™ kit has been developed to process small volumes of blood samples (both plasma and sera). The kit includes Exo-spin™ buffer as well as SEC columns. The Exo-spin™ buffer is a polymer-based precipitation buffer which can be used for the optional first step. For the second step, pre-packed and equilibrated ready-to-use SEC columns provide reliable and consistent results.

Exo-spin™ column and resin pore size

The column bed volume in EX02 Exo-spin™ mini-columns is 500 µl, allowing for 100 µl of volume to be loaded onto each column.

The pore size within the resin is approximatively 30 nm to attain a highly pure exosome elution. All other molecules (e.g. proteins, lipids) which are smaller than 30 nm will enter into the pores and remain trapped in the column. 

Highest recovery and purity

Exosomes in a range 30-250 nm will elute in the first fraction. All other proteins and lipids will be retained in the column and will elute later than the exosomes, ensuring a highly pure sample ready for downstream application.

Reproducibility

All our columns are manufactured in our laboratory to ensure a high reproducibility between each lot. As proof of reproducibility and batch-to-batch consistency, a large number of peer-reviewed scientific papers have been published describing the use of Exo-spin™.

Storage

Upon receipt, store purification columns and Exo-spin™ Buffer at 4°C. All other components should be stored at room temperature (15°C - 25°C).
