Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! The test only requires a small quantity of blood through a finger prick. To ensure safety and prevent infection of any kind, we include alcohol wipes to be used before and after the test is administered.
Our lab tests are all backed by science! We have all our resources available in the resource section of the website. In short, our lab tests target and detect the Y chromosome, which would be present in the mom’s blood if she’s pregnant with a boy.

For further accuracy, it's important to ensure that there’s no contamination in the sample. You can do that by properly following all the instructions provided in your kit.
- Wash hands thoroughly before collecting the blood sample.
- Make sure that there are no men in the room during your collection process. This is to ensure that no Y chromosome finds its way into the sample other than what might be present in mom’s blood.
- Collect enough blood to reach the fill line on the collection tube.
No problem. If we're wrong, simply e-mail email@example.com & send us a copy of the baby's birth certificate. Once received, we'll send you your money back, guaranteed.
In order to ensure the accuracy of the test, please make sure:
- You are at least 7 weeks pregnant. Anything less than that might cause a false test. You can do the eligibility test to find out if you're 7 weeks pregnant.
- You live in Canada or the USA, as we only ship to these countries at the moment.
Not yet 7 weeks in? Our test is good for 1 year! Buy it today and use it as soon as you are eligible.
Of course, we love surprises!
Tell us where you would like the test results to be sent to instead, and we will email them accordingly. Please ensure that the e-mail is correctly written.
You will not receive an email notifying you about your sample being received in the lab but we will notify you when it's selected for analysis. For the reception in the lab, please take a look at the tracking information that was used to send your kit back to us and that will give you the most up to date information.
At the very early stages of pregnancy, the fetal blood is mixed in with maternal blood. By analyzing the blood of the mother, we can separate the maternal blood form the fetal blood and with that we can get a lot of genetic information about the baby. The information we look for specifically is presence/absence of the Y-chromosome. Knowing that males and females differ on the chromosome pairs (XY vs. XX) we target to determine the presence or absence of the Y-Chromosome. If this chromosome is detected, then we can make a conclusion that a male fetus is present but if it's absent then we can conclude that it's a female fetus. Once that information is received, we notify you of the results and you can begin to celebrate!
We target for regions of the Y-chromosome which was designed by our research team and our scientists. We're confident that our regions have a very high affinity to the selected portion of the target chromosome which has proven to be 99% accurate.
We also hold a Health Canada MDEL License, the ONLY gender detection company in Canada to have this certification. All samples are analyzed in Canada in our lab in Laval, Qc and the company is 100% Canadian owned and operated.
Yes! As of August 2022 we will be in a clinic near you. Please see the clinical option tab to find a clinic near you for the collection of your sample with the help of a health care professional.
If you do decide to collect your sample in a clinic, please purchase directly from the provider as they will handle the collection and shipping the sample back to us.
