Getting to know the gender
Simple yet powerful, we use blood samples that will only require a simple finger prick and a few blood drops, in order to get to the answers you need- the gender of your baby.
The gender test is offered at R4095 with results in just 8 working days.
*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 the test
Firstly we would like to say that all the genetic tests are scientifically validated in top laboratories and ISO 17025 accredited. Secondly, this gender prediction tests are highly reliable boasting accuracy results of 98%*.
After you have sent your blood samples to the laboratories, we will commence the analyzing process. What we look for in the maternal blood is what is known as fetal DNA fragments. Fetal DNA fragments are passed through the kidneys of the mother and into her bladder, eventually being expelled in her blood. Using a scientific technique known as Polymerase Chain Reaction we are able to determine specific genetic markers such as the presence of the Y chromosome.
Basically males are born XY while females are born XX chromosomes. Through DNA analysis, determining the presence of the Y chromosome means that the unborn baby is a boy, while if there is no indication of the Y chromosome then it’s a girl?
