Using dSTORM to study purified extracellular vesicles

Posted by Andras Miklosi on 11 Jun 2019

Cells release different types of small-sized membrane vesicles (from 30nm to 1000nm) as a way of communicating with other cells and remove unwanted cell contents; these vesicles are collectively known as extracellular vesicles (EVs). Here we share how we have optimized the imaging of purified EVs to study their size, content and behavior using super-resolution microscopy.
