AlphaBiolabs Opens New Walk-In Centre in Preston

AlphaBiolabs has opened its newest walk-in centre for customers in Preston, providing on-site sample collection services for members of the public, the legal sector and the workplace sector.

The walk-in centre, located within the Flourish Medical Centre at Quayside House on Navigation Way, is now taking appointments for all customers looking for a flexible solution for their sample collection requirements.

Customers using the walk-in centre will be seen by our professional clinicians, who are specially trained to collect a range of samples, including cheek (buccal) swabs for DNA testing, as well as hair, nail, blood, breath, urine, and oral fluid (saliva) samples for drug and/or alcohol testing purposes.

All samples for legal or workplace purposes are collected observing strict chain of custody procedures.

If you who would like to arrange an appointment at our Preston centre or at any of our other nationwide walk-in centres for peace of mind testing, legal testing or workplace testing, simply call 0333 600 1300 or email

Why visit our Preston walk-in centre?

AlphaBiolabs is an established and highly-regarded testing provider for DNA, drug and alcohol testing. Our UKAS-accredited laboratory testing is conducted in-house with fast turnaround times. We are also Ministry of Justice and RISQS accredited.

Samples required for a legal DNA, drug or alcohol test or a workplace drug or alcohol test must be collected under strict chain of custody conditions.  This helps to ensure that the samples are obtained correctly and from the right people.

All our walk-in centre clinicians are highly experienced at collecting samples under strict chain of custody conditions, so you can be confident that your results will be legally defensible.

So, if you are a legal professional, social worker or private individual requiring a legally-instructed DNA, drug or alcohol test, or an employer/employee who needs a drug or alcohol test for the workplace, you may want to book an appointment at our Preston walk-in centre.

We also offer FREE sample collections at all our UK-wide walk-in centres for tests instructed by legal or social work professionals.

For members of the public who are taking a Prenatal Paternity Test or a Baby Gender Test, our walk-in centre clinicians can collect the blood sample that is required from the mother.

Our peace of mind relationship DNA tests are designed for you to take samples yourself at home, but we appreciate that not everyone is confident to do this. If you would like assistance collecting your samples, you may wish to book an appointment at our Preston walk-in centre at a time that suits you.

To arrange a sample collection appointment at our new Preston walk-in centre, call our Customer Services team on 0333 600 1300 or email and we will book your appointment for a time that suits you.   

We can also provide you with friendly, confidential advice on which test is best for you.
