Minute™ Hi-Efficiency Exosome Precipitation Reagent
Exosomes are vesicles secreted by cells, which are present in a variety of body fluids such as serum,
ascites, spinal cord fluid, urine and saliva. Cultured cells also secrete significant number of exosomes. The
size distribution of exosome is ranging from 30-120 nm. The biological function of exosomes is believed to
serve as intercellular messengers. Filtration and ultracentrifugation are classical ways of isolating and
enriching exosomes, which have demonstrated to be tedious and time consuming.Fast enrichment of
exosome can also be achieved through precipitation. Almost all currently available exosome precipitation
products are PEG-based. MinuteTM Hi-Efficiency Exosome Precipitation Reagent is designed for improved
precipitation of total exosomes from biofluids and cell culture medium using non-PEG based reagent. Unlike
many other products that require a specific kit for a specific type of sample, this kit can be applied to most
samples using the same reagent and similar protocol.
