Discover the Gender with a Gender Prediction DNA test
Are you expecting a baby? Then you must have pondered the following question several times: am I having a boy or a girl? Determining your unborn baby’s gender has never been easier; here, at homeDNAdirect Ireland, we offer a 98% accurate* baby gender DNA test with only maternal blood samples. It is no longer necessary to wait till your 18th week ultrasounds because this DNA test can reveal the gender at only 9 weeks.
Why choose this baby gender test?
Boasting an accuracy of 98%, the baby gender prediction test is easily the most reliable test on the market. No need for invasive blood samples, the test offered is completely painless involving just a simple finger prick using the lancet provided. Furthermore, the gender test gives you results as early as the 9th week of pregnancy. You can use our pregnancy calculator to work out your dates.
Sample collection is done from the comfort of your own home using our simple home sample collection kit.
*Pink or Blue® is conducted by Consumer Genetics Laboratory and advertises a 98% accurate at 9 weeks. This test has been validated by the laboratory to work starting at your 9th week of pregnancy (from your last menstrual period). The laboratory has a quality assurance program that continuously monitors the quality of its methods. There is a 2% error rate that is attributed to the home nature of the test and user error such as taking the test too early or not providing enough blood samples. The laboratory analysis relies on the detection of fetal DNA in the sample provided. However, levels of fetal DNA vary from pregnancy to pregnancy and there may not always be sufficient volumes of DNA in the 9th week to provide an accurate result. The volume of fetal DNA will increase with weeks of pregnancy which means the chances of success improve with increased gestational age. Our recommendation therefore is to take the sample at 10 weeks.
Please understand that Company Policy is that the results of the Pink or Blue® test are aimed at being used for curiosity, bonding and preparation for the new born baby. The results are not to be used for the purpose of gender selection.
The science behind it
This test test has been validated through several laboratory trials to ensure its reliability. So how does the test work? By analyzing fetal DNA fragments in the maternal blood sample, scientists are able to determine with accuracy the gender of your baby. It is important to know that only males carry the Y chromosome while females carry only X chromosomes. It is through this principle that scientists are able to determine the sex of your baby.
By using a DNA amplification method known as polymerase chain reaction, scientists check for the presence of the male Y chromosome. This chromosome can only be present if you are expecting a baby boy. If the Y chromosome is not present then it would automatically mean you are having a baby girl.
