EV core and researchers at University of Helsinki collaborate with Nasasbiotech through eatris

The research group of Leif Groop and the EV Core from University of Helsinki, embarked a collaboration with NasasBiotech, a Spanish spin-off company seeking test sites through EATRIS.

NasasBiotech had developed a novel extracellular vesicle (EV) isolation technology called ExoGAG. As we were interested in simple and fast technologies suitable for biomarker discovery, we tested the ExoGAG with our EV-specific technologies on urine samples in comparison to standard isolation technologies in the field. Finally, we reported the results to NasasBiotech. The project was mutually beneficial as NasasBiotech received important feedback and we gained forefront experience about this emerging fast technology.
