Isolation of exosomes and circulating cell-free DNA has been an ongoing challenge in the development of the liquid biopsy. By scaling deterministic lateral displacement arrays to the nanoscale, we have fabricated a chip-based technology enabling the separation of particles down to 20 nm. We have demonstrated the ability to sub-fractionate exosomes and DNA by size and measure their size distribution on-chip. Additionally, we can label exosomal surface markers and quantify the distribution of these proteins within a population of exosomes, enabling size and surface marker correlation. Our aim is to scale this technology in order to provide both a large-scale preparative and diagnostic tool for exosome and cfDNA isolation and detection.
