FAIRFIELD, OhioOct. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — DNA Diagnostics Center (DDC), a pioneer in prenatal DNA testing, is thrilled to announce a significant advancement in early gender determination for expectant parents. Based on the outcomes of a multicenter clinical trial, the  Peekaboo™ Early Gender DNA Test can now accurately reveal fetal sex as early as 6 weeks into pregnancy. This breakthrough empowers parents with the earliest gender insight available, revolutionizing the prenatal experience.



The clinical study, summarized in a white paper titled “Advancing Prenatal Gender Determination: The Peekaboo™ Clinical Study,” involved 552 pregnant women ranging from 6 to 39 weeks gestation (median=7 weeks). The study aimed to assess the effectiveness of the Peekaboo™ Early Gender DNA Test in accurately determining fetal sex at the earliest stages of pregnancy.

Maternal blood samples were collected from clinical sites across the U.S.A., and these samples were meticulously processed using the proprietary qPCR-based Peekaboo™ test to extract and analyze cell-free DNA. Of the 551 samples in which fetal sex could be determined, 546 (>99%) Peekaboo™ results were confirmed to align with the actual fetal sex.

Importantly, the clinical trial addressed a critical gap in early gender determination. At 6 weeks of gestation, a point when conventional methods such as ultrasound and many molecular tests are unable to accurately identify fetal sex, the Peekaboo™ Early Gender DNA Test demonstrated its exceptional precision. Traditionally, fetal sex is not determined until around 20 weeks via ultrasound.

The Peekaboo™ Early Gender DNA Test‘s accuracy at 6 weeks of pregnancy marks a significant milestone in prenatal testing, as DNA Diagnostics Centers continues to redefine possibilities in the fertility and pregnancy journey.
