ANGLE has a standardised and fully integrated workflow for the enumeration and evaluation of epithelial and mesenchymal CTCs and CTC clusters. The workflow integrates:
- ANGLE’s Parsortix system for CTC capture (capturing both epithelial and mesenchymal phenotypes), together with;
- an optimised and customizable panel of antibodies for identification of the full range of CTCs (and exclusion of WBC), and;
- Bioview imaging solutions for the evaluation and enumeration of CTCs
How the service works

Send your patient blood samples to one of our labs in BD K₂EDTA vacutainers.
Samples will be processed by ANGLE within 24 hours.
Images of captured and characterised CTCs shared via secure cloud.
Report for each sample processed is shared back with you.
