Laboratory Technician – ANGLE Biosciences Inc., Toronto

Toronto, Canada

ANGLE is a world-leading liquid biopsy company with offices in Guildford (UK), Toronto (Canada) and the  Greater Philadelphia area (US). ANGLE’s proven patent protected liquid biopsy platform products have the  potential to be used in cancer diagnostics to enable early, accurate identification of an individual’s condition for  the prevention, treatment, and monitoring of disease.

With 1 in 2 UK people being diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime*, 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.

In 2021 we opened GCLP compliant clinical laboratories in Guildford (UK) and the Greater Philadelphia area (US)  to provide “pharma services” for cancer drug trials and, once the labs are accredited, laboratory developed tests  (LDTs) for patient management. The pharma services business offers dynamic analysis of patient condition before,  during and after the patient receives the drug, assessing both CTCs and CTC clusters recovered from a simple  blood test.

We are also pursuing an FDA product clearance for the Parsortix system and have submitted a full De Novo  submission, which is currently in substantive review with FDA.
