CTCs

About £3.7 million ($4.9 million) of proceeds from the placement would go toward the acquisition, while remaining funds will support assay development validation, and working capital.

The firm will hold the intellectual property for its cell capture and analysis technology as QMUL files patents for recent findings using the Parsortix system.

The companies will market Angle's Parsortix system for harvesting circulating tumor cells with Qiagen's liquid biopsy product portfolio.

The firm plans to use the funding to expand commercial sales efforts, advance CDx partnerships, build its regulatory infrastructure, and explore new R&D avenues.

The trial will evaluate a single CTC analysis pipeline that incorporates cell enumeration and isolation systems from Menarini-Silicon Biosystems.

The study, launched today, aims to evaluate the use of liquid biopsy and natural killer cell testing for the early detection of recurrent breast cancer.

A Complete Genomics-led team isolated and sequenced the genomes of 34 circulating tumor cells from a woman with metastatic breast cancer.

VWR will act as the exclusive distributor for Biocept's liquid biopsy blood collection tubes everywhere in the world except China.

Asia Genomics will make CellMax's tests, including the CellMax-DNA Genetic Cancer Risk Test Assure and the CellMax-CRC Protect Test, available immediately.

New research has identified circulating cell subtypes with ties to better or worse outcomes in individuals with prostate cancer.
