Rapid Nickel-based Isolation of Extracellular Vesicles from Different Biological Fluids
Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are membranous structures that cells massively release in extracellular fluids. EVs are cargo of cellular components such as lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids that can work as a formidable source in liquid biopsy ...
