Abstract

We report a highly-efficient separation of exosomes in 1 mL urine or serum using nanowire structures, and an extraction of exosomal micro-RNA(miRNA) from the separated exosomes. A series of procedures can be demonstrated with no any troublesome techniques, just only by introducing solution into nanowire structures embedded in microchannels. Such an easy analysis method for exosomal miRNA, especially from 1mL urine, could contribute to less invasive diagnosis and unknown biomarkers discovery.
