About the AlphaBiolabs Prenatal Gender Test Kit

The baby gender test is non-invasive, which means that there is no risk to the mother or the unborn child when taking this test. Only a blood sample is needed, which is usually drawn from the mother’s arm. However, the mother must be at least 8 weeks pregnant to ensure that any Y chromosome present is at a detectable level.

Feel confident to use the results of the baby gender DNA test to help with planning for your baby’s arrival.

How soon can the sample be collected?

Non-invasive prenatal gender testing can be carried out as early as 8 weeks into the pregnancy, and simply requires a sample of the mother's blood.

The blood sample is time sensitive and needs to be collected by a nurse, a phlebotomist or another medical professional and returned to AlphaBiolabs as quickly as possible.

The mother must be at least 8 weeks’ pregnant to ensure that any Y chromosome present is at a detectable level. If the blood sample has insufficient DNA then another blood sample will need to be collected. If the testing is still unsuccessful after this time, results will not be possible. This is considered an inconclusive result.

How does the prenatal gender test work?

The mother’s blood sample is processed to determine if fetal DNA is present. If it is, the sample is analyzed to look for any Y-chromosomal DNA. The detection of a Y chromosome is indicative of a male child. If fetal DNA is detected without a Y chromosome it is indicative of a female child.

The blood sample is time sensitive and needs to be collected by a nurse, a phlebotomist or another medical professional.

Blood sample collection

The mother just needs to provide a blood sample. This is usually drawn from the arm.

The blood sample is time sensitive and needs to be collected by a nurse, a phlebotomist or another medical professional. The samples should then be sent back to our laboratory for testing, straight away.

The mother must be at least 8 weeks’ pregnant to ensure that any Y chromosome present is at a detectable level. If the blood sample has insufficient DNA then another blood sample will need to be collected. If the testing is still unsuccessful after this time, results will not be possible. This is considered an inconclusive result.

How accurate is the Prenatal Gender test?

This is a highly accurate testing method. However, the mother must be at least 8 weeks pregnant to ensure the Y chromosome (if present) is at a detectable level. Otherwise, the test may be inconclusive and may require a recollection.

A blood transfusion by the mother may complicate analysis. A bone marrow or stem cell transplant could also affect results.

 

What results are available with twins?

In twin pregnancies, the test will show whether at least one fetus is male or that all fetuses are female.

 

 

What does non-invasive mean, and is the test safe?

Our non-invasive gender test uses a simple blood sample from the mother and therefore does not require a needle to be inserted into the womb. With our non-invasive prenatal gender test, there is no risk to the baby or mother.

DNA tests from other testing labs may include invasive gender tests that require cells be obtained from either the amniotic fluid or the placenta using a needle.
