Clinical Scientist / Phlebotomist – ANGLE North America Inc., Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania, US

Come and join our dynamic team of highly skilled, passionate, creative professionals who together are advancing rare cell diagnostics and making precision medicine a reality.

ANGLE is a world leading liquid biopsy company with offices in Guildford (UK), Toronto (Canada) and Pennsylvania (US). ANGLE’s proven patent protected liquid biopsy platforms include the Parsortix® system, for the enrichment of rare cells, including circulating tumor cells (CTCs), from blood, and the HyZip system, for the highly sensitive, multiplexed and cost-effective analysis of RNA, DNA and/or proteins. Together the technologies provide sample to answer molecular analysis of CTCs from a simple blood draw.

ANGLE’s liquid biopsy technologies have the potential to help clinicians select the most appropriate drugs and therapies for an individual patient. As such, our technologies support the development of Precision Medicine.

ANGLE is collaborating with world leading cancer research institutions, such as MD Anderson and the University of Southern California in North America, and CRUK-Manchester and UKE-Hamburg in Europe. The Parsortix system and consumables are being sold in Europe and North America to leading cancer research groups. More than 35 peer reviewed publications (including from Nature and Cell) highlight the insight that can be gained from a simple blood draw about a patient’s cancer.

ANGLE has recently opened GCLP compliant labs in Guildford (UK) and Philadelphia (USA) to provide the pharmaceutical industry with a send-away service for the analysis of CTCs in patient samples from clinical trials. Furthermore, ANGLE R&D labs will provide custom development of CTC assays for pharma – which can then be transferred into the GCLP labs.
