We used Vesi-Ref CD63-GFP to validate our Light-induced Extracellular Vesicle Adsorption (LEVA) technique, which rapidly and selectively modifies the chemistry of surfaces at the microscale, allowing the precise adsorption of EVs from various sources. Vesi-Ref CD63-GFP were patterned onto coverslips using different templates including both circular and microtrack-shaped resolution tests, as well as different gradient patterns (Gaussian, exponential, linear). Vesi-Ref CD63-GFP were imaged using total internal reflective fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy (Nikon), allowing clear visualization of EVs patterned in the desired regions, with minimal adsorption in the undesired regions. Vesi-Ref CD63-GFP complemented our use of dye-only controls in validating the LEVA technique, and in combination with other results, encouraged us to move forward with biomedical applications described in our recent manuscript
