These are unprecedented times. The death rate from Covid-19 disease continues to rise around the world, and people are not surprisingly worried. Rumours surrounding potential cures are rife. In Iran, almost 300 people are reported to have been killed and more than 1000 have become ill after ingesting toxic methanol. Other stories about fake remedies for coronavirus continue to spread across social media.

In the UK, testing kits for coronavirus are in short supply. AlphaBiolabs has been able to provide some rapid antibody testing kits, which are commended by government experts as a way to screen people and get frontline staff back to work. The first batch is being donated to the NHS free of charge. The remainder of the stock is earmarked for our workplace and legal customers. Unfortunately, unscrupulous people are pretending to be AlphaBiolabs to trick worried individuals into buying a testing kit from them online. This is a scam and no order will be fulfilled.

We know of a number of companies that have copied our branding and website in an attempt to hoodwink worried customers. Please check that you only visit the AlphaBiolabs website: We don’t want any more people to be taken advantage of at this already difficult time.

The AlphaBiolabs coronavirus testing kit uses a finger-prick blood sample to detect the presence of the COVID-19 infection within 15 minutes. You can talk to a member of our Customer Services team on 0333 600 1300. Alternatively, you can email
