How Galleri detects cancer
Who can benefit
The Galleri test is recommended for use in adults with an elevated risk for cancer, such as those aged 50 or older. The Galleri test is intended to be used in addition to, and not replace, other cancer screening tests your healthcare provider recommends.
The Galleri test does not detect all cancers, nor does it measure your genetic risk of developing cancer in the future.
Request the Galleri test
The process begins by requesting the test from a healthcare provider.
FAQs about the Galleri test
Visit the blood draw locator to either find a partner lab near you and contact them to schedule an appointment or determine if the location allows walk-ins. You will need a copy of your completed test request form and an unopened Galleri specimen collection kit for your blood draw.
Once you receive your collection kit, please do not break the quality seal on it. The collection kit should be opened by the trained practitioner who draws your blood sample. Make sure you store it at room temperature until your blood draw appointment. The contents are sensitive to extreme temperatures. For example, avoid storing your collection kit in the trunk of your car for long periods of time.
The trained practitioner who draws your blood will pack and ship your sample back to the GRAIL laboratory for processing.
No preparation or fasting is required for the Galleri test.
Approximately 1.5 tablespoons (or about 20 mL) of blood in two tubes typically from a vein in your arm.
If you no longer wish to receive your Galleri results, please contact your healthcare provider to request a cancellation. If you are unable to reach your healthcare provider or require further assistance, please contact GRAIL Customer Service by emailing email@example.com or calling 833−694−2553.
