Cancer move for local resources companies

Two Perth-based resources companies are planning to switch sectors with the acquisition of cancer-based biotechnology firms, with one planning a backdoor listing and the other seeking support for an IPO.

Spectrum Rare Earths has entered into an agreement to acquire Sydney-based BCAL Diagnostics (BCAL Dx), a biotech company that is developing a blood-based test for the presence of breast cancer.

BCAL Dx has partnered with a research team based in Kentucky, US, to develop the technology as a breast cancer screening test.
