Another way to make great savings with your legal testing is with our free Walk-in Centres.
At our walk in centers, sample collection is provided for free and does not require an appointment. Your client can just pop in at a time that is convenient to them (subject to opening days and times) so it is unlikely that they will not be able to attend the sample collection for any reason due to their flexible and convenient nature.

How Our Sample Collection Service Works

We have made sample collection easy. Order your test through AlphaBiolabs and we will facilitate the collection of samples from your client. The process is as follows:

  1. Order your test online or call us and provide details of your clients
  2. We will contact your clients to arrange sample collection appointments
  3. One of our highly trained nurses will travel at a convenient time for your client, to an address of your choice to collect the samples
  4. Our nurse will collect the samples from you or your client in a way which conforms to the strict chain of custody desired by a UK court of law
  5. Our nurse will then deliver the samples collected back to our UK laboratory for the testing process to begin.

We offer a secure, rapid and convenient service by our experienced network of highly qualified staff nurses. Our staff nurses provide a friendly and reliable service, which guarantees correct sample collection, whilst observing strict chain of custody procedures that safeguard the integrity of the sample.

On receipt of your instruction we will register the case and will promptly send you a formal quotation. We are then able to dispatch a qualified AlphaBiolabs staff nurse to a designated location to collect the sample.

The testing at AlphaBiolabs is carried out using mouth swabs, hair, urine or blood samples. The sampling procedure is easy and fast, ensuring minimal discomfort for your client.


A company nurse will swab a sterile polyester-tipped applicator around the inside of your client’s mouth for just a few seconds, or collect the relevant hair, urine or blood sample appropriately.


The sampling procedure for hair strand analysis and DNA testing is completely painless. A blood sample will be needed for some types of alcohol testing.


Sampling takes just a few minutes. Our company staff nurse will fill out a sample authorisation form, which your client will need to sign. The whole sample collection procedure should take less than 30 minutes from start to finish.


AlphaBiolab’s drug and alcohol testing services are certified to ISO9001. This standard provides assurance ensures that your results are accurate.


The samples can be collected from any location convenient for your client and during the appointment confirmation of identification is required.
We can collect samples from:

  • Home Address
  • Prisons
  • Solicitor’s Office

  • Council Offices
  • Care Homes
  • Workplaces

We go to  great lengths to collect samples; in fact no other UK laboratory has such a widespread collection service available and many other laboratories use our collection service for their sample collection. We undertake to try and meet your court date and will do everything possible to collect the, drug, alcohol & DNA testing samples in good time for your court appearance.
