SBI's Exosome Workshop Training Course
June 5-9, 2017

Registration for the June 2017 Exosome Workshop class is now open, register today!

In this workshop, SBI's exosome experts will teach how to quickly and easily isolate or immunopurify exosomes from different biofluids. Wet lab experience includes how to quantify isolated exosomes using enzymatic & ELISA assays, as well as Western blotting of common exosomal markers. Training on labeling exosomes to track cellular uptake and delivery as well as engineering exosome cargo will also be covered. This training course is designed for MS/PhD/MD/Postdoc students and scientists already in the exosome life science research field or those interested in beginning exosome studies. Previous knowledge in basic tissue culture is recommended.

What makes this workshop course unique?

  • Participants can analyze their own samples.
  • Participants practice validated exosome workflows. 
  • Each participant receives a laboratory manual.
  • Participants receive continuous education and support.
  • Learn from experts with years of exosome experience.
  • All instructors available for one-on-one discussions.
  • Course takes place in sunny Palo Alto, CA.

Are you interested in studying exosomes?

• Would you like to isolate, quantitate and engineer exosomes?
• Do you want to study exosomal RNA?

If you answered yes to any of the above, then this course is for you.

• In-depth exosome training course over 5 days with breakfast and lunch included (lodging and transportation not included).
• Ship your own samples to SBI for exosome analysis during the course (2 sample limit) !
