Sample collection has become more convenient and affordable than ever before in the South London area as AlphaBiolabs has opened a new Walk-in Centre in South London from today.
The centre is open on Monday and Thursday from 9.30am and 4.30pm and provides free sample collection for DNA testing and Drug & Alcohol testing at the following location:
Springfield Medical Centre
110 Union Road
Situated between Clapham North and Stockwell tube stations this centre provides a flexible approach for South London residents to pop-in without even having to make an appointment. Solicitors in London can also be rest assured that their clients are less likely to miss their DNA testing or Drug & Alcohol testing for any reason.
David Thomas, Managing Director of AlphaBiolabs said: “Our Walk-in Centres have been a great success and we have wanted to add this convenient service to the London area for quite some time now.”
He added: “AlphaBiolabs are delighted to announce the opening of our London Walk-in Centres, after much searching to provide the best possible facilities to customers in this area.”
Free Sample Collection in South London
The sample will be collected completely free of charge by a fully qualified nurse, who will then send it on to our UK based laboratory for analysis, where they are swiftly and expertly analysed by DNA and Toxicology specialists.
As our sample collectors follow strict procedures to maintain confidentiality and the chain of custody the results of the testing can be used for legal and immigration purposes. Keeping the chain of custody, alongside our laboratory’s UKAS ISO 17025* accreditation means that the results of our tests are court approved and accepted by:
- Family Law Courts
- The Ministry of Justice
- The CSA
- The Home Office
- The UK Border Agency
Before you attend one of our Walk-in Centres please call 0333 600 1300 to register your case.
Simple and Painless Sample Collection
For DNA testing the sample collector will use buccal swabs similar to a cotton wool bud, rubbing them on the inside of both cheeks, to take samples of saliva for analysis. This method is quick and painless and therefore there are no age restrictions, which can be particularly useful for paternity testing for example.
*Please note: Our sample collection service is not included in our scope of accreditation.
