What is a DNA Gender Test?
Anticipation Ultrasound offers an early gender DNA detection test to women starting at 8 weeks into pregnancy. We work in conjunction with Gateway Genomics to offer Sneak Peek DNA Clinical. An on-site phlebotomist draws a blood sample and then we overnight mail the blood sample to the Genomics Labs for processing. Results are available 2-3 days after your appointment. You will receive an email of your results. You will also get an ultrasound to see the baby while you are at our studio!
How does the DNA Test work?
The Sneak Peek DNA Clinical test utilizes the natural process of shared fetal DNA circulating inside the mother's bloodstream. PCR technology can detect the presence or absence of male Y chromosome in the blood sample. If it is detected then the baby's gender is male and if it is not detected then the baby's gender is female.
When will I get my results?
The blood samples are shipped to the lab in California using USPS Next Day air and you will receive your results by email within 2 to 3 days.
Is an appointment necessary?
Yes. You can book online or call our offices to schedule.
