Geneton team has developed a genetic test to determine gender of a child from the 10th week of pregnancy. The test has been successfully implemented in routine testing since 2009 under the name Babygen Test.
The child’s gender can be determined by fragments of DNA that circulate in the mother’s blood. Analysed biological material is taken by standard blood sampling, therefore it does not pose any risk to the mother or the baby. After blood sampling, the presence of fragments from the Y chromosome, which clearly determine the boy gender of the fetus, is monitored. In case of their absence, it is a girl fetus.
