Support Services

The HEVI supports EV research from experimental design and troubleshooting to training and grant writing support.  To request support for your research, please submit an application. For general enquiries, feel free to contact us.

Technical Support

We are available to assist with methodologies for EV isolation, purification and characterisation. Our techniques include:


  • Differential centrifugation
  • Density gradient ultracentrifugation
  • Size exclusion chromatography
  • Dead-end and tangential flow ultrafiltration
  • Nanoparticle tracking analysis
  • Tunable resistive pulse sensing
  • Dot/western blotting
  • Transmission electron microscopy
  • Labeling for fluorescence microscopy
  • Surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS)
  • Affinity-based isolation

Travel Support

The HEVI provides grants for conferences and other travel related to EV research. We have suspended acceptance of applications due to COVID-19 travel restrictions but hope to resume in 2021.
