Sneak Peek DNA

 

What is Sneak Peek DNA?

Anticipation Ultrasound offers an early gender DNA detection test to women starting at 9 weeks into pregnancy. We work in conjunction with Gateway Genomics to offer Sneak Peek DNA testing. This genetic test is designed to work in conjunction with an ultrasound  for expecting mothers. An on-site phlebotomist draws a blood sample and then we overnight mail the blood sample to the Genomics Labs for processing.  


HOW DOES THE DNA TEST WORK?

The Sneak Peek DNA 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 tests are shipped to the lab using USPS Next Day air and you will receive the results in 2-3 days.


Is an appointment necessary?

Yes. You can book online or call our offices to schedule.
