What is GASTROClear Test?

Simplified stomach cancer screening by using a blood test to assess your risk of stomach cancer before symptoms appear.
Higher detection rate (better sensitivity) and fewer false positives (better specificity) than traditional stomach cancer markers*. It is powered by technology for ultra-sensitive detection of microRNA tumour markers.

​How does GASTROClear Test tell You Whether You are at Risk of Stomach Cancer?

Blood test reports a risk score which will indicate if you are at Low Risk, Intermediate Risk, or High Risk of having stomach cancer.
Your doctor will interpret the test report and refer you for gastroscopy if your risk is high.
