Exosomes & Single Cell Analysis Summit

The Exosomes and Single Cell Analysis Summit 2014 features the most up-to-date topics in this expanding field and brings together an array of leading international speakers--the only event in its class, this conference aims to present the audience with the very latest developments in the study of extracellular vesicles (EVs) as well as the analysis of cells at the single cellular level (SCA).

Agenda Topics:
- Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs): A Paradigm for Diagnostic Utility of Single Cell Analysis
- Diagnostic Opportunities for Extracellular Vesicles [eg., Liquid Biopsies]
* Cancer and Other Disease Classes where Exosomes May Hold Diagnostic Utility
* Exosomes as Biomarker Carriers
- Exosomes as Delivery Vehicles
- Liquid Biopsies: Exosomes, CTCs
- Methodologies for the Isolation, Purification, and Study of Exosomes and Microvesicles [Extracellular Vesicles]
* Isolation and Purification Methodologies, Reagents for Capture
* RNA and Protein Analysis in Exosomes and Microvesicles
* Tools for Enumeration and Characterization
- Microfluidic Devices for Single-Cell Transcriptomics
- Novel Tools and Technologies for Single Cell Analysis (SCA)
* FISH for SCA and mRNA Localization/Enumeration at the Single Cell Level
* Flow Cytometry: Applications in SCA
* Front-End Sample Preparation for Single Cell Analysis
* Label-Free Routes to Single Cell Analysis
