What is SneakPeek Clincal?

SneakPeek Clinical is an early gender DNA detection test offered to women starting at 6 weeks into pregnancy. An on-site phlebotomist draws a blood sample in the comfort of the Mother Nurture Ultrasound facility, and then returns the sample to SneakPeek Labs for processing. The laboratories offer the fastest turnaround times in the industry; a 1-2 day turnaround. The concierge style of service even includes an email directly to you to report your result. The test can be packaged with follow up ultrasound session(s) to view your baby and provide images that you can take home.

How Does SneakPeek Work?

In a natural process during pregnancy, fetal cells pass into the mother’s bloodstream from the placenta. As these cells break down, fetal DNA is released into the mother’s own circulatory system. SneakPeek utilizes this shared fetal DNA circulating inside the mother’s bloodstream. Our PCR technology has the ability to detect the presence or absence of male Y chromosome in the blood sample provided starting at 6 weeks into pregnancy. If it is detected then the baby’s gender is male and if it is not detected then the baby’s gender is female.

For twins, if the result comes back female, we know both babies are girls, if it comes back male, we only know for sure that one baby is a boy. The sex of the other baby would need to be determined by an ultrasound at 13 weeks.

How Accurate are the Results?

Under the conditions of the test being performed in a sterile environment via standard venipuncture by a licensed Phlebotomist, the accuracy rate is 100%. SneakPeek performed a blinded multi-center study in 2015 at four independent clinical sites to assess the performance of the Prenatal Gender Test. Venous blood samples were collected from women between 6 and 22 weeks gestation. The Prenatal Gender Test correctly identified fetal sex in all samples. Fetal sex for all samples was unknown prior to genetic testing and was confirmed via ultrasound at the end of the study. The tests yielded 99.9% accuracy for fetal sex identification.

Where is the DNA Gender Blood Test Performed?

The blood tests are conveniently performed at a scheduled time with a licensed phlebotomist at the Mother Nurture Ultrasound facility located in Puyallup, WA and offsite in our mobile blood draw vehicle in Graham, WA.
