AlphaBiolabs has an expert and experienced team of DNA scientists that have developed efficient methods of testing that are UKAS-accredited, competitively-priced, rapid and award-winning. We don’t outsource or send samples overseas: all DNA relationship testing is performed at our in-house laboratory in Warrington.

Our Peace of Mind DNA testing kits can be bought online and posted direct to your home. We offer Paternity testing for just £99 with next day results as standard. Maternity, Sibling, Twin, Grandparent, Aunt and Uncle, Y Chromosome and Single Profile tests are also available. The kits include full instructions and simply involve rubbing a mouth swab on your inside cheek to collect buccal cells.

We also offer an innovative DNA prenatal paternity test, which can be used to non-invasively determine paternity of a baby before birth. The test can be performed as early as 6 weeks after conception. Results can be fast-tracked and made available within 4 days.

Continually innovating DNA testing

By continually innovating AlphaBiolabs remains at the forefront of the testing industry. As well as the ‘mouth swab’ DNA tests, it is launching two new methods of DNA acquisition. Following extensive trials, toothbrushes have been proven to be a good source of DNA. An advantage is that samples can be collected in an unobtrusive manner (although consent is still needed). This could be particularly useful in paternity disputes to avoid awkward questions from older children.

DNA testing finger nails is another method whereby samples can be collected easily. This kind of test is useful when someone has passed away as a mouth swab cannot be used to collect DNA. The nails can be collected under chain of custody conditions for legal cases. A DNA sample may be needed to prove a biological relationship in the case of probate or will disputes. Alternatively, a DNA profile could be created to produce a lasting memento of a loved one.
