The SneakPeek Early Gender DNA Test by Gateway Genomics is designed to specifically focus on fetal sex and return just one answer – male or female. This enables the test to be run on magnitudes smaller volumes of blood than the typical non-invasive prenatal test. When maternal blood samples arrive at SneakPeek Labs, extracted cell-free fetal DNA is run through real-time quantitative PCR to detect with a sensitivity down to a single Y-chromosome. If Y-chromosomes are found, the result is a boy. If they are absent, the baby is a girl. The test is run in 3 hours with 99.1% accuracy¹.
SneakPeek At-Home is an easy-to-use DNA test to discover a baby’s gender as early as 8 weeks into pregnancy. The test kit is sent via mail to the mother’s home, and a self-collected blood sample is returned to SneakPeek Labs in a prepaid envelope. Gender results are emailed directly, as early as the following day.
SneakPeek Clinical is offered by participating OB/GYN offices and ultrasound studios to moms who are at least 8 weeks into pregnancy. A maternal blood sample is taken on site and sent to SneakPeek Labs. Results are emailed directly to mom as early as the following day, with no extra fuss.
¹1In laboratory testing, SneakPeek accurately determined fetal sex in 99.1% of 108 pregnant women at 8 weeks gestational age. See the peer-reviewed study in the International Journal of Pregnancy and Childbirth (Int J Pregn & Chi Birth. 2019; 5(4):135-137). In a separate laboratory test, fetal sex was accurately determined in 99.6% of 241 pregnant women at 9 weeks gestational age and later into pregnancy. See the peer-reviewed study in the Journal of Pregnancy and Child Health. (J Preg Child Health. 2017; 4:358).
