About Grail

GRAIL is an American biotechnology and pharmaceutical company, which began in 2015 as a start-up in San Francisco, California, seeking to develop an early cancer screening test for people who do not have symptoms. Its headquarters is in Menlo Park, California, with locations in Washington, D.C., North Carolina, and the UK. Its parent company is Illumina in San Diego, California.

Their liquid biopsy, still undergoing research as of November 2020 and called the 'Galleri test', detects fragments of DNA in a blood sample via next-generation sequencing, which identifies DNA methylation, distinct patterns of which are associated with particular cancers, potentially allowing for the early detection of cancer and providing information of the origin of the cancer. It is one of three multicancer screening tests under investigation; the other two being the CancerSEEK assay and the PanSeer assay. On 27 November 2020, GRAIL announced a commercial partnership with the UK's National Health Service, to trial the Galleri test, to which several scientists have responded.
