If you need drug testing in Preston, AlphaBiolabs’ Walk in Centre makes the process easier than ever.

Rather than having to find time to arrange an appointment for sample collection, those needing to take advantage of drug testing can call into our Preston centre without having to book in advance. And using this option can help reduce the total cost of testing.

One of our expert sample collectors will be at the Preston Walk in Centre to ensure the process is carried out quickly, efficiently and with no risk of contamination. This is ideal for those instances when you need to be certain that the results of a drug test are completely accurate and that the sample has not been tampered with.

Drug tests

Drug testing in Preston is used by a wide variety of customers, including solicitors and social workers needing to provide evidence for a court case or monitor the progress of a client. For the results of a drug test to be admissible as evidence in legal proceedings, it must be collected by a professional and securely delivered to the testing laboratory following a strict set of procedures.

Businesses also use the Walk in Centre, which is in Albert Edwards House, in The Pavillions*, if they need to send their employees for drug testing in Preston. This could be part of a random drug testing programme, internal investigation or to check the progress of someone with a history of substance misuse.

Some companies also use drug testing as part of the recruitment process for some roles where safety is critical.

Our Preston Walk in Centre, which is open between 11am and 3pm on Wednesdays, is also used by members of the public who may want a loved one to complete a drugs test for a number of reasons.

AlphaBiolabs has more than a decade’s experience of working in the drug and alcohol testing sector. We offer a range of options to suit different needs, including hair strand and nail testing which looks at whether an individual has misused substances at any point during a period of weeks or months.

Oral fluid testing analyses samples of saliva to find out whether someone has taken drugs in the last 48 hours, while urine testing is also an effective way of potentially ruling out immediately whether someone is under the influence of narcotic substances.
