The Science Behind the Baby Gender Test
Once in the laboratory, the sample is analysed using a highly-advanced method for DNA replication and amplification. This method is known as Polymerase Chain Reaction or PCR and is the most accurate DNA testing method in molecular biology.
The scientists will analyse the blood sample provided to confirm the presence of Y chromosomes in the mother’s blood. If there are an Y chromosomes present, then the baby is a boy. If no Y chromosomes are detected, then the baby is a girl.
The Baby Gender Test is based on a simple rule in genetics: males carry XY chromosomes and females carry XX chromosomes. Any Y chromosomes detected in the sample submitted for testing are assumed to be due to a male baby. Expectant mothers must ensure that they do not allow any males to come into contact with the sample or any part of the collection kit. All precautions are provided in our instructions and need to be strictly followed.
Ensuring Your Baby Gender Test Result Is Reliable and Accurate
The laboratory testing your sample has very strict procedures in place to ensure that no males handle the samples or some into contact with any of the instruments used to test the DNA. This ensures that there is no contamination with male DNA from male laboratory staff.

It is virtually painless. Contemporary finger lancets are a huge leap forward from more traditional ones and allow a much quicker and superficial puncture that feels like a mild prick.
