Exosome – Human CD63 Isolation/Detection enables the purification of CD63+ exosomes (also called extracellular vesicles and multi-vesicular bodies) from pre-enriched cell culture samples. These exosomes can then be detected using techniques such as flow cytometry, electron microscopy, or Western blotting. The exosomes must be pre-enriched before isolation. This can be done by ultracentrifugation, or by using the fast and efficient Total Exosome Isolation (from cell culture media) reagent. • Obtain highly pure CD63+ exosomes • "See" your sample during handling • Easily scalable protocol • Detec...

Dispase II (neutral protease) is an amino-endo peptidase that hydrolyzes the N-terminal peptide bonds of non-polar amino acid residues. This sequence is found with high frequency in collagen. Dispase II has a mild proteolytic action that makes it useful for the isolation and routine passaging of primary cells. Dispase II is relatively gentle, dissociates well at physiological temperature and pH, and generally maintains cell membrane integrity. Gibco® Dispase II is produced in Bacillus polymyxa and packaged as a lyophilized, non-sterile powder for research use in cell or tissue dissociation, an...
