Is the DNA Gender Testing Science
One of the most exciting outcomes of recent genetic research
is the discovery that there is fetal DNA in an expectant mother’s
blood as soon as five weeks gestation all the way through
to delivery of the child. During pregnancy, small amounts of the baby’s
DNA pass into the mother’s blood stream. We are able
to isolate and analyze this fetal DNA from the mother’s
blood sample obtained through a simple finger prick. Pink
or Blue® is specific for detecting DNA from a Y-chromosome.
The expectant mother would not normally have Y-chromosomal
DNA. Thus, if a Y-chromosome is detected, we can determine
she will have a baby boy. If there is no DNA from a Y-chromosome,
then we know that the baby is a girl. It is that simple!
How accurate is Pink or Blue®?
The Pink or Blue® test is 95% accurate at 9
weeks from the first day of your last menstrual period (which
is about 7 weeks post-conception). Click

or Blue Eligibility Date. From our studies, the
5% error rate was attributed to the home nature
of the Pink or Blue® test and user error such
as taking the test too early (less than 7 weeks post-conception),
not providing enough blood sample, having a male help with
the sample collection, and taking the sample in a non-sterile
environment. For more information, please read our Retest
Policy. Pink or Blue® has a quality assurance
program that continuosly monitors the quality of our methods
and reagents and the accuracy of our results. After ordering
Pink or Blue®, you will have the opportunity
to participate in our ongoing quality control programs. Your
participation will contribute to the Pink or Blue®
mission to provide accurate and high quality service and will
benefit future mothers using Pink or Blue®.
