How we do our DNA testing

We utilise the most up-to-date DNA testing technology to ensure the reliability and accuracy of our genetic testing. We were the first UK laboratory to offer accredited 24 marker paternity testing and retest all our exclusion results.

We send your DNA paternity test kit direct to an address of your choice using discreet packaging.

Our paternity test kit includes mouth swabs to be rubbed gently and painlessly on the inside of the cheek, so it is not a problem if anyone involved is scared of needles.

Our paternity tests look at 24 DNA markers and examine the child’s DNA and identify which half is inherited from the mother and which half is from the father. When testing the biological father of the child both will share identical sections of DNA at each marker, when the tested man is not the biological father there will be differences in the DNA of the man and the child.

Now you can find out the answers you need with the UK’s most popular home DNA paternity test kit from AlphaBiolabs.

What’s in our DNA paternity testing kit?

Our paternity DNA testing kit contains enough collection swabs to test one alleged father, one mother and one child.

When paternity testing it is beneficial to also provide a sample from the mother, if possible, to reduce the possibility of an inconclusive result.

This applies even if the mother is known to be a biological parent, as a greater probability of paternity can be established with a comparison of the child’s sample against both of the adult’s samples.

Enclosed in the test kit:

  • Peace of Mind DNA test request/consent form
  • Full instructions on how to take the DNA paternity test and return the samples back to us
  • A self-addressed envelope to send your DNA test samples back to us
  • x3 DNA sample collection swab packages containing x2 swabs in each package
  • Individual DNA test sample envelopes for the alleged father, mother and child.


If you want to test more than one child with the same test, you can add extra children to the package when ordering and more swabs will also be provided in the test kit.

Our Peace of Mind DNA paternity test costs from just £99.00. We ask for this payment in advance if you are buying your test securely online.
