What makes this test the most advanced of its type on the market?
EasyDNA’s new baby gender test offers an unbeatable accuracy of 98% or more* and eliminates any chance of DNA contamination since the blood sample required (7 to 10ml) is taken via a standard venipuncture procedure (collection of blood from a vein) and tested within a state of the art laboratory. Contrarily, other tests on the market are using alternative sampling methods which carry a much higher risk of sample contamination. But it doesn’t stop there, the expectant mother can proceed with the analysis of this advanced test from 8 weeks post conception or 10 weeks of pregnancy, starting from only R4095! If you seek peace of mind, then you need look no further as this test is the one for you.

Sample collection and test results
The sample collection kit will contain the required vial in which to place the blood sample and detailed instructions. Please note that a qualified person is required to collect the sample via a standard medical blood draw and that the sample collection kit will be sent directly to the collector. Standard results for the baby gender test are delivered within 5 to 8 working days but we also offer an express testing option with results in 3 working days for the extra cost of R1850. Please note that turnaround time starts from the moment samples reach the laboratory. Please allow for travel time of the samples to the laboratory which should take a few days.
How can you tell the baby’s gender so early in the pregnancy?
The laboratory analysis looks for Y-chromosomal DNA (only found in males) in the mother’s blood using a technique called Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) that can amplify small amounts of DNA to easily detectable levels. Y-chromosome DNA will only be present in the sample if the baby is a boy since the mother does not carry the Y-chromosomal DNA herself. If the analysis does not detect any Y chromosomes, then the fetus is female and you will have a baby girl.
Although this test is a great way of discovering the sex of your baby, ultrasounds are also important as part of your prenatal care provision. Should you have any queries, please consult your doctor.
*This test is 98%+ accurate at 8 weeks post conception (10 weeks of pregnancy). The laboratory has a quality assurance program that continuously monitors the quality of their methods and reagents and the accuracy of the results. The 2% error rate is attributed to user error such as taking the test too early or not providing enough blood sample.
