Answers hidden in blood
Performed in a genetic laboratory, BabyGen is a non-invasive genetic screening test that involves analysing a sample of maternal blood. The sex of a baby is generally determined using ultrasound screening. However, this method only works at a later stage of pregnancy and the probability of false results is greater. Needless to say, if the position of the foetus in the womb is unfavourable, the method may be difficult or even impossible to use.
BabyGen can detect the presence of Y chromosomes in the blood stream of a pregnant woman thanks to high-sensitivity molecular methods based on DNA analysis. It is the most advanced prenatal gender test today, the accuracy of its results being more than 99.5%.*
*The accuracy of the test has been tested on a sample of more than 1,500 retrospective and prospective blood samples taken from pregnant women.
