Overview

EV labeling optimized for in vivo imaging
Visualizing extracellular vesicles (EVs) in cells and organisms has been technically difficult due to the high background from auto-fluorescence in the UV and visible areas of the spectrum and a lack of specificity from the typically lipophilic dyes.  SBI’s ExoGlow-Vivo EV Labeling Kit (Near IR) is the first reagent specifically designed to overcome these problems through the use of a proprietary, non-lipophilic dye that emits in the near infrared (NIR) range (excitation at 784 nm; emission at 806 nm). Delivering a level of specificity and sensitivity that takes the guesswork out of tracking EVs in vivo, ExoGlow-Vivo is ideal for EV biodistribution and kinetic studies needed to fully realize the value of EVs in basic research and translational applications.

  • Optimized for imaging EVs in animal models
    • High sensitivity—NIR spectrum enables deep tissue illumination and eliminates background from auto-fluorescence
    • High specificity—non-lipophilic dye overcomes background from non-specific labeling
  • Fast labeling protocol takes you from EV isolation to injection-ready labeled EVs in less than 1 hour

    • Assess targeting specificity of engineered EVs
    • Follow EVs in organ homing studies
    • Compare how different EV isolation methods affect biodistribution and other in vivo parameters critical for evaluating EV performance
    • Allows ADME studies of EVs as delivery vehicles
  • Compatible—delivers robust performance on EVs isolated using all methods tested—including the ExoQuick family, ultracentrifugation, and column-based workflows
  • Easy-to-use—labeling protocol is quick and straightforward
  • Powerful—can be used with as little as 250 µg of EVs

Each kit includes lyophilized dye sufficient for labeling up to 12 samples*. We recommend solubilizing the lyophilized dye in 25μL of DMSO.

*One sample is defined as 2 μL of solubilized dye with 250 μg protein equivalents of EVs.

Supporting Data

Imaging EVs with a new level of clarity

Figure 1. ExoGlow-Vivo labeled EVs show robust signal in vivo. A. HEK293-derived EVs isolated using ExoQuick-TC were labeled with the ExoGlow-Vivo dye and administered intravenously via the superficial temporal vein into post-natal day-4 C57BL6 mice. Animals were imaged at various time points using IVIS® In Vivo Imaging System (PerkinElmer). B. Dissection after 24-hours shows the preferential accumulation of labeled EVs in the liver and kidneys.

Figure 2. ExoGlow-Vivo dye delivers minimal background. A. Human mesenchymal stem cell-derived EVs were labeled with ExoGlow-Vivo dye and unbound dye removed via ultracentrifugation and a wash. EVs were administered intravenously via the superficial temporal vein into post-natal day-4 FVB mice. Animals were imaged at various time points using an IVIS® In Vivo Imaging System (PerkinElmer). Control refers to supernatant from wash step (i.e. free dye). B. Dissection after 24-hours shows the preferential accumulation of labeled EVs in specific organs and very low residual background signal from free dye.

Figure 3. ExoGlow-Vivo enables kinetic analysis of EV persistence in living mice. A. Human PBMC-derived EVs were labeled with ExoGlow-Vivo and administered via tail vein injection into SCID mice (m3 and m4). Animals were imaged at various time points using an IVIS® In Vivo Imaging System (PerkinElmer). B. Plotting signal intensity in different organs (liver, bladder, head) as a function of time after injection shows that EVs are rapidly taken up by target organs within 90-minutes of injection and decline at different rates over time.
