Why is this gender test leading the market?
With an unbeatable accuracy of 98%* or more and a slim to none chance of DNA contamination, GTL’s test is the most advanced and trusted gender prediction test on the market. Since the blood sample required (7 to 10 ml) is taken via a standard venipuncture procedure (collection of blood from a vein) and tested within a state of the art laboratory, chances of sample contamination are extremely low and test accuracy is very high. Contrarily, other gender tests use alternative sampling methods which carry a much higher risk of contamination and provide lower accuracy levels. Wait, there’s even more! Expectant mothers can proceed with testing from just 10 weeks of pregnancy (8 weeks past conception), starting from only £219! Discover the gender and be well prepared for your baby’s arrival!

Should you be interested in this service, please select the respective option when ordering the test.
The Science behind the Test
Scientists use a technique called Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (amplifies DNA) to analyse the expectant mother’s blood and look for any Y-chromosomal DNA, which can only be found in males. Y-chromosome DNA will only be present in the sample if the baby is a boy since the mother does not carry the Y-chromosomal DNA herself. If the scientists do not detect any Y chromosomes, then the fetus is female and the mother will have a baby girl.
Although this DNA test is a great way to discover the sex of your baby, ultrasounds are also an important part of your prenatal care. Please consult your doctor if you have any queries.
*The baby gender test is 98%+ accurate at 10 weeks of pregnancy (8 weeks post conception. The laboratory has a quality assurance program that continuously monitors the quality of their methods and reagents and the accuracy of the results. The 2% error rate is attributed to user error such as taking the test too early or not providing enough blood sample.

Most Common Questions
|What will the test results state?|
|How long can I keep the blood specimen for?|
|I have heard of a home urine kit that determines the sex of the baby. Do they work?|
|Can I just use an ultrasound to determine the gender of my baby?|
|Do you sell the gender test in India or China?|
The results for the baby gender test are clear and easy to understand. They will state whether the presence of male DNA has been detected or not.
We recommend sending off the maternal blood sample as soon as possible. Do not refrigerate, spin or freeze the sample and make sure that it is not exposed to temperatures above 50°C.
There are some home urine kits which claim to be able to instantly tell you the sex of your unborn child. These tests generally require the first-morning urine which is mixed with a solution provided in the kit. The test relies on detecting certain hormones which pass out with the maternal urine. The hormones react to the solution to produce a different colour depending if the baby is a boy or a girl. However, the accuracy or reliability of this test can never be compared to analytical testing in a laboratory in terms of accuracy. The actual accuracy levels have also been questioned.
It is not uncommon for pregnant women to rely on ultrasounds as a means of determining the sex of the unborn child. However, the issue with an ultrasound is that it is not uncommon for them to give the wrong or indeterminate results especially in the earlier stages of pregnancy. If you want scientifically certified information on the gender of your baby at an early stage of your pregnancy then you need to perform a baby gender DNA test.
Genetic Testing Laboratories does not sell the baby gender DNA test in either China or India; nor have we provided any license for the sale of our product to either one of these countries. If the test is being sold locally in either of these markets, it is not an authorized sale and we do not support this.
