Summary.  Microparticles and exosomes are cell‐derived microvesicles present in body fluids that play a role in coagulation, inflammation, cellular homeostasis and survival, intercellular communication, and transport. Despite increasing scientific and clinical interest, no standard procedures are available for the isolation, detection and characterization of microparticles and exosomes, because their size is below the reach of conventional detection methods. Our objective is to give an overview… Expand
Elucidating Methods for Isolation and Quantification of Exosomes: A Review
TLDR
This comprehensive review discusses the various standard methods such as ultracentrifugation, ultrafiltration, size-exclusion chromatography, precipitation, immunoaffinity, and microfluidic technologies for the isolation of exosomes. Expand
Innovation in detection of microparticles and exosomes
TLDR
This review focuses on the relatively high throughput detection of vesicles in suspension by flow cytometry, resistive pulse sensing, and nanoparticle tracking analysis, and four methods that are not commercially available: Raman microspectroscopy, micro nuclear magnetic resonance, small‐angle X‐ray scattering (SAXS), and anomalous SAXS.

Methods for the physical characterization and quantification of extracellular vesicles in biological samples.
TLDR
A combination of complementary methods capable of detecting, characterizing and quantifying extracellular vesicles at a single particle level promises to provide new exciting insights into their modes of action and to reveal the existence of vesicle subpopulations fulfilling key biological tasks.

Aggregation by lectins as an approach for exosome isolation from biological fluids: Validation for proteomic studies
TLDR
The validation showed that the sedimentation of lectin-aggregated exosomes is a suitable approach for the isolation of these microvesicles from the complete conditioned culture medium in a research-laboratory setup. Expand
Analytical challenges of extracellular vesicle detection: A comparison of different techniques
TLDR
This review focuses on the most commonly used techniques for detection of EVs, to include microparticles, 100–1,000 nm in size, and exosomes, 50–100 nm in Size, and conventional flow cytometry is the most prevalent technique. Expand
Elucidating diversity of exosomes: biophysical and molecular characterization methods.
TLDR
This review summarizes, first, biophysical techniques based on spectroscopy and other principles, and second, antibody-based molecular techniques including flow cytometry, transmission electron microscopy and third, nanotechnology-dependent exosome characterization methodologies. Expand
Selected Tetraspanins Functionalized Niosomes as Potential Standards for Exosome Immunoassays
TLDR
The design, development and functional characteristics of fully artificial exosomes based on tetraspanin extracellular loops-coated niosomes, produced by bio-nanotechnology methods based on supra-molecular chemistry and recombinant protein technology are presented. Expand
Exosomes and Microvesicles: Identification and Targeting By Particle Size and Lipid Chemical Probes
TLDR
This Minireview proposes that detection of exosome and microvesicle membrane curvature with lipid chemical probes that sense membrane shape is a distinctly promising method for identifying and targeting these vesicles. Expand

Light-scattering flow cytometry for identification and characterization of blood microparticles.
TLDR
This work describes a novel approach to study blood microparticles using the scanning flow cytometer, which measures light scattering patterns (LSPs) of individual particles, and employed a deconvolution algorithm to determine size and refractive index distributions of the whole population ofmicroparticles.

Flow cytometric measurement of microparticles: Pitfalls and protocol modifications
TLDR
The need to standardize assay protocols in order to obtain consistent measurements of microparticle levels is illustrated, as elevated levels of platelet- and erythrocyte-derived microparticles were detected in heparin and PPACK-anticoagulated samples as compared to samples anticoagulate with ACD or sodium citrate. Expand
Measuring circulating cell‐derived microparticles
TLDR
Major differences exist in the preparation of the MP samples, whether or not they are first sedimented and resuspended, means of generic MP detection, and cell lineage-specific antigenic markers, and these differences probably account for some of the different findings among the groups. Expand
Cell‐derived microparticles contain caspase 3 in vitro and in vivo
TLDR
The presence of caspase 3 in MP from anucleated cell types, however, suggests that its presence may not necessarily be related to apoptosis in vivo but may be associated with casp enzyme 3 activation unrelated to apoptotic conditions. Expand
Cell-derived microparticles in haemostasis and vascular medicine.
TLDR
The literature regarding microparticles in their widest definition, including ectosomes and exosomes, are reviewed, to focus mainly on their role in haemostasis and vascular medicine. Expand

TLDR
The hemostasis laboratory offers the most appropriate tools for the assessment of the in vivo significance of microparticles, since they are thought to reflect a balance between cell stimulation, proliferation, and death and it is conceivable that they are discerned as sensors for the maintenance of homeostasis in multicellular organisms.

Human cell‐derived microparticles promote thrombus formation in vivo in a tissue factor‐dependent manner
TLDR
Human cell‐derived microparticles promote thrombus formation in vivo in a TF‐dependent manner and might be the direct cause of an increased thromboembolic tendency in various patient groups. Expand
Characterization and comprehensive proteome profiling of exosomes secreted by hepatocytes.
TLDR
The first extensive proteome of a hepatocyte-derived exosome population is established which should be useful in furthering the understanding of the hepatic function and in the identification of components that may serve as biomarkers for hepatic alterations. Expand
