That’s the question every expectant parent wants to know. Discover the answer at just 7 weeks of pregnancy with Peekaboo, the most accurate early baby gender reveal test. At DDC, we use the most exacting scientific approach to determining baby’s gender (see our Clinical Summary). With a small blood sample, we can determine if pink or blue is in your future with 99.5% accuracy—the highest available! It’s easy, affordable and accurate—and exactly why it’s the only early baby gender reveal test endorsed by the American Pregnancy Association.
A: Baby gender testing through Peekaboo is absolutely safe for both mother and baby because it is non-invasive. All that is required for testing is a small blood sample from the mother.
A: Peekaboo offers the very earliest gender detection of any DNA-based test and can be performed as soon as 7 weeks into the pregnancy with 99.5% accuracy. Our superior equipment and testing methodology make this possible. Use the Eligibility Calculator on this page to see when you can test. The test is not validated for earlier than 7 weeks.
A: The Peekaboo test is validated at 7 weeks of pregnancy or later. Accuracy at earlier times is unknown. There is an increased risk of an incorrect female result prior to 7 weeks’ gestation as the fetal DNA could be below the detection limit of the assay.
A: We know how important this test is to you and promise to provide the earliest, fastest, and most accurate gender DNA-test result on the market. We’re so confident in the accuracy of the Peekaboo test that we offer a 100% money-back guarantee if the gender of your newborn doesn’t match your result.
A: The scientists at our partner laboratory isolate cell-free fetal DNA from the mother’s blood, followed by amplification of both Y-chromosome and autosomal-specific regions using the latest quantitative real-time PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) technology. Analysts are looking for the presence of the Y chromosome, which only males have. If the Y chromosome is present, then the baby is a boy; if it is not present, then it’s a girl! Learn more about PCR.
A: This test has not been validated for multi-fetal pregnancies. If you are expecting twins or other multiples, we suggest relying instead on ultrasound and ultrasound 4D for determination of your babies’ sexes.
