How do we do our baby gender testing?

For €249 with only a blood sample required from the mother, our Baby Gender Test offers a 100% accurate and reliable way to determine the gender of a baby before birth.

Although ultrasound scans are commonly used to determine the gender of an unborn baby between weeks 18 and 22 of pregnancy, these scans are not always correct.

This is because if the ultrasound technician cannot get a clear view of the baby’s genitals, it may not be possible to confirm whether the baby is a boy or a girl.

Our Baby Gender Test uses state-of-the-art processes to identify foetal DNA within the mother’s blood sample and determine whether any Y-chromosomal DNA is present.

If a Y chromosome is present, this is indicative of a male child. If a Y chromosome is not present, this is indicative of a female child.

For this test, the mother’s blood sample is collected FREE OF CHARGE by our specially-trained clinicians at our walk-in centre in Dublin. They will also ensure the sample is safely transported back to our laboratory for testing.

Once you have placed your order online, we will contact you to arrange an appointment at the walk-in centre.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the baby gender test work?
Every human being has a pair of sex chromosomes in each cell. The Y chromosome is present in males, who have one X and one Y chromosome, while females have two X chromosomes.

For a baby gender test, the mother’s blood sample is analysed by our in-house geneticists, who use Next Generation Sequencing to determine if foetal DNA with a Y chromosome is present in the mother’s blood stream.

If a Y chromosome is detected, this indicates that the baby is a boy. If no Y chromosome is detected, this means that the baby is a girl.

What samples are required?
This test requires a blood sample to be collected from the mother by an AlphaBiolabs specially-trained clinician, at our Dublin walk-in centre.

Simply order your test online and a member of our Customer Services team will be in touch to arrange your sample collection appointment at the walk-in centre.

When is the earliest I can take a baby gender test?
The mother must be at least 8 weeks’ pregnant to ensure the Y chromosome (if present) is at a detectable level. Otherwise, the test may be inconclusive and may require a recollection.
How safe is the test? Are there any risks?
The test is 100% safe and risk-free for mother and baby.
What does non-invasive mean?
This non-invasive test uses a simple blood sample from the mother. There is no need for any needle to be inserted into the womb.
How accurate is the test?
The results of our Baby Gender Test are 100% accurate and reliable based on the samples we receive at our laboratory. However, for the highest chance of a conclusive result, the mother should be at least 8 weeks’ pregnant when taking the test.

This is to ensure there is enough foetal DNA in the mother’s bloodstream for the Y chromosome (if present) to be at a detectable level. Our DNA laboratory is also accredited to the international quality standard ISO 17025.

What are the options for sample collection?
Our Baby Gender Test requires that the mother’s blood sample be collected by an AlphaBiolabs specially-trained clinician at our Dublin walk-in centre.

Order your test online or call our Customer Services team on 01 402 9466. Once you have ordered your test, we will work with you to arrange sample collection at our Dublin walk-in centre.

Can this test be performed in twin pregnancies?
In twin pregnancies, the test will show whether at least one foetus is male or that all foetuses are female.
What if a re-collection is required?
If foetal DNA is not at a sufficient level in the mother’s bloodstream for a Y chromosome (if present) to be detected, another blood sample will need to be collected.

If testing is still unsuccessful after a second blood sample has been analysed, this is an inconclusive result.

When do I get my results?
Your confidential results will be emailed to you in 7 days after your samples have been received by our laboratory.

If you choose to upgrade to our express service for an additional €60, results can be made available in just 4 days.
