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 gives you the first step to connect with your baby before you are able to see the exciting clear images from your ultrasound scans. Our on-site phlebotomist that draws a blood sample 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 the same day the sample reaches the SneakPeek Lab. Affordable 4D Ultrasound has partnered with Gateway Genomics to bring SneakPeek Clinical DNA Gender Determination to the Greater Houston area. We are the only ultrasound facility in Houston that can now find out your gender as early as 8 weeks with 100% accuracy and we are super excited to offer this service to our Houston moms!
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.
Do I need proof that I am seeing a doctor for the SneakPeek Clinical test?
No. Our SneakPeek Clinical DNA gender reveal test is the only service that we provide that does not require you to be under a doctors care, a doctors note or proof of prenatal care.
How does SneakPeek® Clinical differ from home tests?
Sneak Peek Clinical has no risk of contamination as home tests do. The blood test sample is never exposed to outside elements like the finger prick method. It is taken by a licensed phlebotomist in a sterile setting. With Clinical, we take care of everything for you. No watching the mailbox or running to the post office. We have everything here and we will overnight your sample for you.
SNEAKPEEK CLINICAL ACCURACY STUDIES
Multicenter blinded study conducted at four ultrasound clinics in 2015
The purpose of this study was to assess the clinical performance of SneakPeek® Early Gender Test (Gateway Genomics) for noninvasive prenatal testing (NIPT) of fetal sex. A multicenter-blinded study was conducted at four ultrasound clinics with maternal blood samples collected from pregnant women between 8 and 35 weeks of gestation. Circulating cell-free DNA was isolated from a micro-volume of maternal plasma and real-time quantitative PCR was performed to detect fetal DNA using a multi-copy sequence on the Y chromosome. An autosomal control gene was used to measure total cell-free DNA (maternal and fetal cfDNA). Sixty maternal plasma samples were tested twice, on different days, to assess the precision of SneakPeek.
Cell-free DNA was detected in all maternal blood samples. Y-chromosome DNA was detected in all samples from women carrying a male fetus. SneakPeek correctly identified fetal sex in all samples. Assay precision data showed minimal variation and high reproducibility of results. Fetal sex for all samples was unknown prior to genetic testing and was confirmed via sonographic evaluation at the conclusion of the study. SneakPeek accuracy, sensitivity and specificity were each 100% for fetal sex identification. This blinded study showed that SneakPeek Early Gender Test is highly accurate for fetal sex determination in early pregnancy.
