Trust AlphaBiolabs with paternity testing for court

AlphaBiolabs have been trusted by some of the UK’s leading family law firms for over 15 years. We also work closely with local authorities and social workers across the country.

Our processes are UKAS 17025 accredited, and we are Ministry of Justice approved to carry out parentage tests directed by the civil courts in England and Wales under Section 20 of the Family Law Reform Act 1969.

All of our legal paternity testing is performed in-house at our Warrington-based laboratory. We provide next day results as standard, with same-day results also available upon request.

When DNA test results can have such a significant impact on a family, we understand how important it is for us to provide accurate results on time.

Robust paternity testing process for court cases

All of our legal paternity testing is performed under chain of custody. This ensures that our results are court-approved and accepted by family law courts, The Child Support Agency and The Home Office.

Chain of custody involves checking the identification of the person providing the sample, taking photographs and obtaining signed paperwork. All DNA samples are sealed to prevent tampering.

When the samples reach us, we use the latest technology to analyse them, and we always re-test exclusions. This gives you complete confidence in our quality and accuracy.

Reporting on paternity testing for court

As part of our legal testing service, you will receive a clear and concise statement of witness report.

This includes details of the type of DNA test performed, the results and a conclusion based on the samples we have analysed. Our reporting scientists also provide their expert opinion where they interpret the results in a succinct and understandable format.
