(Reuters) – U.S-based cancer testing startup Grail Inc, which has received funding from Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN) founder Jeff Bezos, on Wednesday filed for a U.S. initial public offering.

Grail was founded by gene sequencing company Illumina Inc (NASDAQ:ILMN) in 2016, with investments from ARCH Venture Partners, Sutter Hill Ventures and Bezos Expeditions, the venture investment fund of Jeff Bezos.

The company, which is developing a blood test to identify early-stage cancers, has set a placeholder amount of $100 million for the IPO, without disclosing the size of its offering.

Illumina is the majority shareholder in Grail with a 14.6% stake, according to the company’s filing with U.S. securities regulators.

Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS), Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) & Co LLC, and BofA Securities are acting as lead bookrunners for the proposed offering. The company has applied to list its stock on the Nasdaq under the ticker symbol “GRAL”.
