ANGLE’s patent-protected Parsortix technology enables the simple and effective capture and counting of very rare circulating tumour cells from cancer patient blood. ANGLE has established long term partnership arrangements with two research partners: the Cancer Research UK-funded Paterson Institute for Cancer Research, The University of Manchester’s world-leading cancer research institute; and the University of Surrey’s Oncology Department, which works alongside the Royal Surrey Hospital and is a leading UK cancer research centre. The main areas of focus for the first stage of the research partners’ work will include further development of the staining / cell identification protocols to mark the captured cells definitively as cancer cells in the GEN3 cassette; and testing of the system with cancer patient blood to provide independent confirmation of the performance of the Parsortix device. Following confirmation from these research partners that the system is working successfully, ANGLE expects to be able to release a product for research purposes for sale early in the New Year.
