SneakPeek Early Gender Testing
New Horizons is excited to offer early gender DNA testing in partnership with SneakPeek Clinical. Expecting mothers do NOT need to be a New Horizons patient for this test.
How does SneakPeek work?
While every person has her own DNA in her bloodstream, a pregnant woman’s bloodstream also contains DNA from her unborn child. SneakPeek looks for male chromosomes in a small sample of mom’s blood. If male chromosomes are found, that means baby is a boy. If none are found, baby is a girl. SneakPeek is 99.9% accurate at 6 weeks into pregnancy.
What is the SneakPeek process?
At SneakPeek Labs, a test process called non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) is used to analyze cell-free fetal DNA. Starting with a small sample of blood from mom, plasma is separated from whole blood by centrifuge and extracted cell-free fetal DNA (cffDNA) is analyzed for Y chromosomes, which are found only in males. The SneakPeek test is sensitive enough to find even a single Y chromosome, giving you confidence in your results.
What is the cost of the early gender DNA test?
At New Horizons, the SneakPeek Clinical early gender DNA tests cost $149. This fee is not covered by insurance and is due before the test is performed.
When and how will I get my results?
Test results will be sent via e-mail to the e-mail address listed when filling out the consent form. You will receive your test results within 24-48 hours, excluding Sundays and major holidays. Because the SneakPeek lab is based in California, test result e-mails are typically received after 6pm CST. For tests performed on a Friday, results will likely be received on Tuesday.
