What is SneakPeek Clincal?
SneakPeek Clinical is an early gender DNA detection test offered to women starting at 8 weeks into pregnancy. The genetic test is designed to work in conjunction with an ultrasound scan for expecting mothers. 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 8 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.
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 8 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 100% 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. This is a closed blood draw from the vein, providing higher accuracy then a finger prick blood test which has a chance of becoming contaminated.
How Will I Receive My Results?
When you come into the office the day of your appointment, you will fill out paperwork and give an email address to where you want the results sent. You will receive the results to that email from Sneak Peek directly. Sometimes the results will show up in your junk mail. Mother Nurture Ultrasound will also receive a copy of your results AFTER Sneak Peek sends them to you.
How Much Does it Cost?
SneakPeek Clinical Standard – $149 Clients will receive the results 2 days from their appointment date if the appointment was on a weekday.
SneakPeek Clinical FastTrack – $169 Clients will receive the results 1 day from their appointment date if the appointment was on a weekday.
If you have a Saturday or Sunday appointment for the blood draw the results could take longer for delivery due to the post office being closed on weekends.
Please refer to our Pricing Page for more information and discounts included in the package. Insurance does not cover the cost, since it is an elective service that is not medically necessary.
