Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are the cell-secreted nano- and micro-sized particles consisted of lipid bilayer containing nucleic acids and proteins for diagnosis and therapeutic applications. The inherent complexity of EVs is a source of heterogeneity in various potential applications of the biological nanovesicles including analysis. To diminish heterogeneity, EV should be isolated and separated according to their sizes and cargos. However, current technologies do not meet the requirements. Here we introduce new way that provides noninvasive and precise separation of EVs based on their sizes without any recognizable damages. We believe the system and methodology would open new windows in precision medicine and personalized medicine.
