Laboratory Technician (Cell Biology & Imaging)

Guildford, UK

ANGLE is a world-leading liquid biopsy company with offices in Guildford (UK), Toronto (Canada) and  Philadelphia (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 Philadelphia (USA) 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.
