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