When placing your order, simply choose either an appointment at one of our UK-wide walk-in centres** or a visit from one of our professional sample collectors**, and a member of our Customer Services team will contact you to arrange your blood draw.

Boy or girl? Find out as early as the 6th week of pregnancy

Baby Gender Test

How accurate is our Baby Gender Test?

Our At-home Baby Gender Test is a non-diagnostic test that screens for the presence of a Y chromosome in the mother’s blood from as early as 6 weeks into pregnancy.

If a Y chromosome is detected, this indicates that the baby is a boy. If a Y chromosome is not detected, this indicates that the baby is a girl.

As with every baby gender test on the market, the accuracy of this test is 99%. This means that in 1 out of 100 cases, the results of the test may be inaccurate. This is unlike our DNA relationship tests, which all have a 100% accuracy.

For the highest chance of a conclusive result, the mother must be at least 6 weeks pregnant to ensure that any Y chromosome present in the blood sample is at a detectable level.

You must also follow the test instructions exactly when collecting your sample and ensure that no males handle the contents of the test kit, as male DNA contamination can cause a false result.

Please ensure you read and understand our Terms & Conditions of Service that relate specifically to Baby Gender testing, which can be viewed here.

See FAQ: Why is the test only 99% accurate?

Use our Eligibility Calculator to work out if you’re at least 6 weeks pregnant.

Frequently Asked Questions

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 to determine if the Y chromosome is present.

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.

This test requires a blood sample from the mother, which you can collect yourself in the comfort of your own home using our convenient, pain-free, TinyTAP device.

We are the ONLY UK laboratory to offer TinyTAP for fuss-free, home sample collection. Simply follow the instructions included in your test kit to collect your blood sample by pressing the device against your arm. Then return your sample to our laboratory. 

If you would prefer to have one of our specially trained clinicians collect your blood sample, simply place your order online and choose sample collection at one of our UK-wide walk-in centres (+£49), or for one of our sample collectors to visit you at a convenient time and location (+£99).

A member of our Customer Services team will then contact you to arrange your blood draw.

Alternatively, call us on 0333 600 1300 or email info@alphabiolabs.com for more information.  

The mother must be at least 6 weeks’ pregnant to ensure that any Y chromosome present in the blood sample is at a detectable level.

Our baby gender testing is 100% safe and risk-free for mother and baby, with only a blood sample required from the mother.

Choose our At-home Baby Gender Test (RECOMMENDED) to collect your own blood sample in the comfort of your own home using our innovative, fuss-free TinyTAP device.

Alternatively, you can arrange to visit one of our walk-in centres for a blood draw by one of our specially trained clinicians, or to have one of our clinicians visit you at a time and location convenient to you (Clinical Baby Gender Test).*

Our baby gender test has a proven accuracy of 99%, making our results extremely reliable.

However, due to the nature of the scientific method, we cannot guarantee 100% accuracy, as we do with all our DNA relationship tests. This is because there are several factors that can affect the results of the test.

This is the same for every baby gender test available on the market.

As such, this is a screening test only and not a diagnostic confirmation of the baby’s gender.

For the highest chance of a conclusive result, the mother must be at least 6 weeks pregnant to ensure that any Y chromosome present in the blood sample is at a detectable level.

If you are collecting your own sample at home using our TinyTAP device, it is very important that samples are collected exactly in accordance with the instructions provided in your test kit.

The test is not suitable for women who have had a bone marrow/stem cell transplant or solid organ transplant from a male donor at any time OR a blood transfusion in the 3 months prior to testing.

For further information, please see our Terms and Conditions here.

Our baby gender test has a proven accuracy of 99%, making our results extremely reliable.

However, due to the nature of the scientific method – non-diagnostic screening for a Y chromosome – we cannot guarantee 100% accuracy, as we do with all our DNA relationship tests. This is because there are several factors that can affect the results of the test.

This is the same for every baby gender test available on the market.

Factors that can affect the results of the test include:

  • The level of foetal DNA present in the blood sample at the time of testing – this is highly variable between individuals, and the test cannot determine the level of foetal DNA in the sample – only whether a Y chromosome is present.
  • Male DNA contamination – where the DNA sample has become contaminated with male DNA due to handling of the kit contents by a male individual, environmental factors, or other reasons beyond the customer’s or laboratory’s control.

    Please be assured that every effort is made to minimise the risk of sample contamination throughout the testing process; samples must be collected by females only, following strict collection instructions, and are processed by a female-only lab team.

  • A vanishing twin may cause a false result.

Please note: The test is not suitable for women who have had a bone marrow/stem cell transplant or solid organ transplant from a male donor at any time OR a blood transfusion in the 3 months prior to testing.

For further information, please see our Terms and Conditions here.

With our At-home Baby Gender Test, you can collect your own blood sample in the comfort of your home with our easy-to-use, pain-free TinyTAP device.

Simply follow the instructions included in your test kit to collect your sample and return it to our laboratory.

The price of the test includes your test kit and all lab fees.  There are no additional fees, and no need to arrange a blood draw. This is the most cost-effective and convenient option, and also an ideal choice for anyone who is needle phobic.

If you would prefer to have a blood draw performed by one of our specially trained clinicians, you will need a Clinical Baby Gender Test.

Simply choose how you would like your blood sample to be collected when placing your order (at a walk-in centre* or at a convenient time and location for you*), and a member of our team will contact you to arrange your sample collection appointment.

*Additional charges apply.

In twin pregnancies, the test will show whether at least one foetus is male or that all foetuses are female.

Your confidential results will be emailed to you 3 working days after your samples have been received by our laboratory.

If you choose to upgrade to our Express Service for an additional £49, results can be made available the next day (if samples are received in the laboratory before 10am).

Our Baby Gender Test reports are very clear and easy to understand, so you will know the sex of your baby as soon as you open your test results.

The report includes your Baby Gender result, which is set out clearly at the top of the report, a short statement explaining how the test was performed, and a conclusion (confirmation of your result). You can view an example of each test report (Boy and Girl), below.

If a Y-chromosome is detected in the mother’s blood sample, this indicates that there is a 99% chance that the baby is a boy.

If a Y-chromosome is not detected, this indicates that there is a 99% chance that the baby is a girl.

Our TinyTAP device offers a convenient, fuss-free way to collect your own blood sample in the comfort of your own home, by pressing the device against your arm to collect your sample, with no additional fees and no appointment required.

Full instructions on how to collect your sample are included in your test kit.

We advise that you use the TinyTAP device to collect your own sample to avoid any possibility of contamination with male DNA. If you would prefer to have someone help you, you must only use FEMALE helpers.

If you would prefer to have a blood draw performed by one of our specially trained clinicians at one of our walk-in centres*, or at a time and location convenient to you*, simply select one of these options when placing your order.

*Additional charges apply.

Our At-home Baby Gender Test looks for the presence of the Y chromosome in the mother’s blood. Therefore, hormonal changes such as that caused by breastfeeding will not impact your test results.

Research shows that foetal DNA is eliminated from the mother’s bloodstream within 1-2 days. This means that a previous miscarriage will not impact the results of your test.

Tattoos will not impact your ability to collect your blood sample and will not affect the test results. Using the TinyTAP will also not affect your tattoos.

Studies have shown that foetal DNA is no longer detectable in the mother’s bloodstream within 1-2 days after giving birth. This means that a previous male pregnancy will not impact your test results.

You can order your At-home Baby Gender Test online now for just £89.

The cost of the test includes your test kit, self-collection of your blood sample in the comfort of your own home using our TinyTAP device (included in your kit), and all lab fees for testing and analysis. 

Additional charges apply if you would prefer to have a blood draw performed by one of our specially trained clinicians at an AlphaBiolabs walk-in centre, or at a location of your choosing.

Results are sent via secure email in just 3 days. For next-day results, choose our Express Service for +£49.

You can order a baby gender test here. Alternatively, you can email info@alphabiolabs.com or call Customer Services on 0333 600 1300.

Read reviews from real customers

A wonderful experience from start to finish! We found the communication and professionalism of AlphaBiolabs to be truly brilliant. Everything you need will come with the kit, with clear and visual instructions on how to use. Nothing has been overlooked in this experience, from the speed of the delivery to the clear packaging and instructions – even the heat pad for warming your arm beforehand is included!

The TinyTAP device was quick, easy, and painless to use with no mess or fussing around.

We were shocked at how quickly the results came back and would definitely recommend this company to anyone having a baby!

Alphabiolabs were an incredible company to deal with. They made everything very clear to understand and I felt really looked after and I’m good hands. My bloods were taken in my home, and it’s an experience I’ll hold so close to my heart.

We are absolutely over the moon to be expecting our second baby boy! We have been so lucky to find AlphaBiolabs, which are the loveliest company and make it possible to find out your baby’s gender earlier than a scan can through a blood test!
