How can I get a paternity test in London?

If you’re looking for a paternity test in London, AlphaBiolabs offer a choice of convenient and affordable options.

DNA testing for paternity is the most accurate scientific method of determining a biological relationship between children and their father. We offer two different types of paternity test.

1. Peace of mind paternity test

Our peace of mind DNA test is ideal for anyone looking for a home paternity test in London. It is the UK’s most popular home DNA testing kit, and can help to give you an answer when there are doubts about a child’s biological father.

Simply order your paternity test and post your cheek cell samples back to us, where they will be analysed at our award-winning UK laboratory. Your results will be emailed to you the next working day. If you don’t want to wait, we also offer a same-day service for an extra £70.

2. Legal paternity test

Our legal DNA test can be used as evidence in family court cases, or for changing legal documents such as a birth certificate. If you need this type of paternity test in London, it must be performed under specific instructions known as chain of custody.

Under a chain of custody, one of our trained sample collectors ensures that the correct person is providing a DNA sample by checking their ID, taking photographs and obtaining signed paperwork.

You can still perform a legal paternity test in your own home, but a trained sample collector needs to attend in order for the results to be legally defensible.

If you need a paternity test in London, you can also provide your samples for free at one of our conveniently located Walk-in Centres in North or South London.
