If you’re wondering, ‘where can I get a private COVID test near me?’, AlphaBiolabs can help.

Our 100% accurate NHS-standard COVID-19 tests can be ordered online and delivered directly to your door. This means you don’t have to worry about travelling to a testing centre, which can be challenging, especially if you are feeling unwell or don’t have your own car.

Our laboratory PCR tests can detect whether you have an active infection of COVID-19. It can be taken regardless of whether you have symptoms of coronavirus but it cannot tell whether you have had the virus in the past and then recovered.

Our private COVID test works by examining a sample taken from your nose or throat for genetic material contained within the virus. Using a scientific process known as real time polymerase chain reaction (rt PCR), any of this genetic material present in your sample is copied billions of times until there is a sufficient amount for detection.

With our coronavirus testing, it doesn’t matter if you don’t live near a testing centre or you’re based in a remote area. Simply go to our website and order your test by 2pm and it will be delivered by a courier service the following day.

You will be given everything you need to collect your own samples with clear, user-friendly instructions and guidance. Once you have completed this process, simply seal your swabs in the packaging provided and return them to us in the pre-paid envelope supplied with your testing kit.
