METVES II: Standardisation of concentration measurements of extracellular vesicles for medical diagnoses


2019–2022    Better measurement accuracy for a new class of biomarkers as a diagnostic tool

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

Project develops reference materials and procedures to standardize all aspects involved in detection of EVs by flow cytometry.

Project actions:
WP1: Development of reference materials
WP2: Development of reference methods to characterise EV reference materials
WP3: Development and characterisation of biological test samples

MIKES optimises its atomic force microscope for traceable size determination of EV reference materials and biological test samples.
