A test to establish your Blood Alcohol Content following being stopped by the police for suspected drink driving or driving under the influence of alcohol.
If you have been stopped by the police for suspected drink driving or driving under the influence of alcohol, and they have taken a blood or urine sample to test for alcohol levels, they will provide you with a sealed blood or urine sample. This is so you can have your blood or urine sample tested privately, giving you a second opinion and peace of mind knowing that the result is correct.
The benefits of sending your sample to us are that we can provide you with a fast accurate BAC ('Blood Alcohol Content') reading. This result will be admissible in a court of law (providing we receive the sample intact and the bag has not been opened).
Police will prosecute for blood and urine alcohol levels of even 1mg over the legal limit, so it's important to have a separate, independent test.
This alcohol check is for anyone who has been stopped by the police for suspected drink driving, and require an additional private test for a second opinion.
There are no symptoms as this test is purely to measure Blood Alcohol Content.
You will receive an email with the address details of the forensic toxicology laboratory where you will need to post your blood sample to along with a special form we provide.
Your blood sample will be analysed at one of our chosen laboratories. You can be assured of fast, accurate results from one of our accredited independent providers of clinical diagnostic tests.
