ANGLE is a specialist medical diagnostic company with pioneering products in the field of cancer diagnostics. Their Parsortix cell separation system is based around a unique microfluidic technique for isolating rare cells from whole blood samples. It’s capable of capturing circulating tumour cells (CTCs) at concentrations as low as one CTC per billion healthy cells.
CTCs are the mechanism by which cancer spreads through the body, so
improving detection and analysis has big implications for cancer
research, diagnosis and treatment. eg technology was tasked with
developing ANGLE’s patented technology into a functioning device that
addresses the needs of the research market – the Parsortix instrument.
