Gateway Genomics, a leading developer of direct-to-consumer genetic tests that give families insight into their future children, announces that the Mom's Choice Award Among the Best in Family-Friendly Products was awarded to SneakPeek Gender DNA Test. To be considered for the award, five SneakPeek Gender DNA At-Home test kits were submitted for use to Mom’s Choice, which matched the products with appropriate evaluators in the MCA database. Evaluators were bound by a strict code of ethics to ensure objectivity, as well as blinded to Gateway Genomics as the test provider.

"Our aim is to introduce families and educators to best-in-class products and services,” explains Dawn Matheson, Executive Director of the Mom’s Choice Awards. “We have a passion to help families grow emotionally, physically and spiritually. Parents and educators know that products and services bearing our seal of approval are high-quality and great value. The MCA evaluation program is designed to incorporate the expertise of scientists, physicians and other specialists, and we also engage parents, children, educators, and caregivers because they are experts in knowing what is best for their families.”

Scored on educational value, design, production quality, and cost, SneakPeek Gender Test was granted the Mom’s Choice Award Among the Best in Family-Friendly Products.

“We’re proud to be granted the Mom’s Choice Award,” says Gateway Genomics CEO, Chris Jacob. “Since 2014, we’ve worked to make the SneakPeek Gender test more accurate, accessible earlier in pregnancy, and easy to take. Third party independent review is very important to our company, and the recognition from the Mom’s Choice Award panel after rigorous testing reflects the emphasis we place on customer satisfaction and ensuring high net promoter scores.”

Gateway Genomics recently launched the breakthrough SneakPeek Snap, a push-button device to collect blood easily and painlessly from the comfort of home. The company also validated its 99.9% accurate test at 7 weeks into pregnancy, allowing moms to take the test one week earlier into pregnancy.
