The article presents the results of studying the physicochemical properties of exosome preparations obtained by ultrafiltration, which indicate a high degree of the composition and properties dependence of the obtained product on the material of the filters used. Quantitative determination of proteins and nucleic acids in exosome samples using UPN-50 filters allows us to conclude that the content of the main impurity compounds in the preparation is significantly reduced compared to dispersions obtained using filters with pore sizes of 220 and 450 nm. Analysis of flow cytometry data made it possible to demonstrate that when using the UPN-50 filter, an increase in the contribution to the dispersion of all types of fractions of non-exosomal size was observed, the appearance of which can result from fraction destruction associated with pore size or filter material properties. drying of the dispersion was observed in the studied exosome samples. Fraction sizes ranged from 40 to 450 nm (an average of about 200 nm). Exosomes from the entire variety of membrane vesicles are fractions that have the most suitable characteristics that allow them to be used as a nanoscale drug delivery vehicle while ensuring the necessary quality control of the drug at the sample preparation stage.
