DNA Blood Test Gender Determination
What is SneakPeek® Clinical?
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 Fetal Vision Imaging Center, and then returns the sample to SneakPeek Labs for processing. The laboratories offer the fastest turnaround times in the industry, with a choice of receiving your result within one or two business days, once they arrive at the lab. The concierge style of service even includes an email directly to you to report your result.
How does SneakPeek® work?
SneakPeek utilizes the natural process of 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.
Where is the DNA Gender Blood Test performed?
The blood tests are conveniently performed at a scheduled time with a licensed phlebotomist or a Registered Nurse at Fetal Vision Imaging. This is a closed blood draw from the vein, providing higher accuracy than a finger prick blood test which has a chance of becoming contaminated.

The blood tests are shipped to the lab using USPS Next Day air. For Standard processing you will receive the results within 3-4 business days after the sample reaches the lab.
