We developed a method to collect micro- and nano-vesicles on a glass substrate using the optical pressure of a laser beam. The laser beam was focused on the glass substrate which sandwiches a suspension containing micro- or nano-sized vesicles prepared by a phospholipid. The optical pressure generated at the interface of the medium and the vesicles accelerated the vesicles to form aggregates on the glass surface. Two types of glass substrates, hydrophilic and aminated ones, showed no difference in the adsorption property of the vesicles. Time to be required for collecting a certain amount of the vesicles was inversely proportional to the concentration of the vesicles. To enhance the collection efficiency, gold nanoparticles were added to the suspension of the vesicles. We found that gold nanoparticles reduced the collection time as short as 1/10-times.
