AlphaBiolabs has opened its first walk-in centre for customers in Ireland, providing on-site sample collection services for members of the public and the legal sector.

Now taking appointments, the new walk-in centre, located at Harcourt Centre on Harcourt Road in Dublin, is open for customers looking for a flexible solution for their sample collection requirements.

Customers using the walk-in centre will have access to experienced clinicians, who have been specially trained to collect a range of samples, including cheek (buccal) swabs for DNA testing, as well as hair, nail, blood, breath, urine, and oral fluid (saliva) samples for drug and/or alcohol testing purposes.

Sample donors who would like to arrange an appointment for sample collection at our walk-in centre, for peace or mind or legal testing, can call 01 402 9466 or email info@alphabiolabs.ie.

Why visit our Dublin walk-in centre?

At AlphaBiolabs, we understand that our customers need flexibility when it comes to having their samples collected for laboratory testing purposes.

Our peace of mind DNA test kits have been specially designed to allow you to collect your cheek swab samples quickly and easily at home.

However, we appreciate that not everyone will feel confident collecting their own samples before returning them to our laboratory.

And if you are taking a prenatal paternity test or a prenatal gender test, our clinicians will be able to collect the blood sample that is also required from the mother.

If you are interested in ordering a DNA test for your own peace of mind, and would like assistance collecting your samples, you may wish to book an appointment at our Dublin walk-in centre at a time that suits you.

Unlike peace of mind testing, samples required for a legal DNA, drug or alcohol test must be collected under strict chain of custody conditions.

This helps to ensure that the samples are obtained correctly and from the right people.

All our trained sample collectors are well-versed in collecting samples under chain of custody, meaning you can be confident that your legal DNA, drug, or alcohol test results will be admissible in court.

If you are a customer instructing us for a legal test, you can arrange for a sample collector to visit you at home, work, or another location. However, you may wish to arrange an appointment at our walk-in centre instead, at your convenience.

Better still, customers who instruct us for a legal DNA, drug or alcohol test can have their samples collected for FREE at our Dublin walk-in centre.

We will also ensure your samples are safely transported to our accredited laboratory for testing.

Where can I get a DNA, drug, or alcohol test?

Our accredited laboratory provides a comprehensive range of testing services for members of the public and legal professionals across Ireland.

To arrange a sample collection appointment at our new Dublin walk-in centre, call our Customer Services team on 01 402 9466 or email info@alphabiolabs.ie and we will book your appointment for a time that suits you.   

We’ll also provide you with friendly, confidential advice on which test is best for you.
