What is SneakPeek Clincal?
SneakPeek Clinical is an early gender DNA detection test offered to women starting at 9 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 2-3 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 9 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 9 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 Mother Nurture Ultrasound facilities located in Puyallup and Bellevue, 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.
When Will I Get My Results?
We will ship the test to the lab using USPS Next Day air. For Standard processing you will get the results the day after the sample reaches the lab or you may opt to upgrade to Fast Track and get the results the same day the blood sample reaches the lab. ( Provided that there are no shipping delays, Fast Track would provide next day results and Standard would provide 2 day results). The results will be sent to an email which you provide the day the sample is taken.
