Extracellular Vesicles (EVs) are nanoscale lipid particles secreted by cells and actively participating to intercellular communication. They have received increasing attention over the past decade as non-invasive biomarkers easily available from liquid biopsy, and they are considered for diagnostic applications. Isolation of such biomarkers however remains challenging mainly due to EVs heterogeneity, especially in size, and biofluids complexity. New methods are required to perform simple, efficient and reproducible EVs isolation. In this PhD thesis, a coupled approach is proposed, based on an aptamer-supported capture of EVs, combined with a Deterministic Lateral Displacement (DLD) size sorting system, in order to demonstrate EVs fractionation according to their protein expression.
