How Much is a DNA Test?

One of the first questions that we get asked on a regular basis is how much are your DNA tests? The cost of DNA testing can range from £99 to £795 with AlphaBiolabs. The answer really depends on the type of DNA test your require and what you’re going to use the results for.

If you’re looking to find out the paternity of a child but you’re not looking to use the results in a court of law then the price of this test will be much cheaper than if you’re looking to use the results in court due to the sample collection process.

For example, a legal DNA test cannot be taken by you. The DNA sample needs to be collected by an independent third party and as such it increases the price of the test. Also as a legal DNA test follows a chain of custody, where each step of the testing process is recorded is incurs a greater charge, due to the time this process takes.
