Urine Exosome Purification Kit

The Urine Exosome Purification Kits provide a fast, reliable and convenient method to purify and enrich for pure intact exosomes from different urine sample volumes ranging from 250 µL to 30 mL. These kits also allow for the purification of intact extracellular vesicles (EVs) from different urine sample volumes, and these EVs are ready for any downstream application. The purification is based on Norgen’s proprietary resin.

These kits provide a clear advantage over other available methods since they do not require any special instrumentation, ultracentrifugation, precipitation reagents or any protease treatments. More importantly, the purified exosomes will not be contaminated with any other RNA-binding proteins that may contaminate your exosomal RNA, which is essential if studying exosomal RNA gene expression.

NanoSight® Analysis
Exosomes - Nanosight

Exosomes enriched with Norgen’s Urine Exosome Purification Kits can be analyzed using NanoSight® for assessing the approximate exosome size range and concentration.

Exosomal RNA Analysis

Exosomal RNA can be isolated using Norgen’s Exosomal RNA Isolation Kit from exosomes enriched using Norgen’s Urine Exosome Purification Kits for gene expression analysis using RT-qPCR, microarray or NGS and for Biomarker discovery.

Storage Conditions and Product Stability
All buffers should be kept tightly sealed and stored at room temperature (15-25°C) for up to 2 years without showing any reduction in performance.

Important Note
Urine samples stored at -70°C, -20°C or at 4°C will develop some precipitation due to the aggregation of some of the highly abundant proteins in urine. Eliminating these precipitates using centrifugation or filtration may cause the loss of exosomes. Furthermore, these precipitates may affect the quality of the purified nucleic acid. We recommend the use of Norgen’s Urine Preservative when collecting urine samples, which is designed for the preservation of nucleic acids and proteins in fresh urine samples at ambient temperatures. The components of the Urine Preservative allow samples to be stored for over 2 years at room temperature with no detected degradation of urine DNA, RNA or proteins. Norgen’s Urine Preservative is available as a liquid format in Norgen’s Urine Preservative Single Dose Ampules, as well as in a dried format in Norgen’s Urine Collection and Preservation Tubes.
