Specialist Diagnostics Products

From bowel cancer, IBS and IBD, to sickle cell anaemia; and from kidney disease to rheumatoid arthritis, Alpha Laboratories has for over 30 years  been contributing to the health of the nation by providing quality, specialist diagnostic kits and controls to hospitals and healthcare professionals in the UK.

Correct diagnosis is the first critical step that enables clinicians to take appropriate action in the treatment of their patients’ medical condition or disease.

The type of diagnostic pathway taken can even play a role in contributing to the patient outcome, by speeding up the time to treatment or providing a less stressful method for analysis of the problem.


Alpha Laboratories – Helping the fight against Bowel Cancer

Bowel cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the UK with over 16000 people dying from it each year.

Regular screening has been shown to significantly reduce deaths and extensive national screening programmes are now underway in Scotland, Wales, England and Northern Ireland.

Alpha Laboratories is the supplier of the bowel cancer test kits used for the Scottish, Welsh & Northern Irish Bowel Screening Programmes and is working closely with the programmes’ organisers to ensure their continued smooth and effective management of FIT testing.
