Mobile Laboratory

Welcome to the Mobile Division Laboratory, a Division of the Bureau of Clinical Laboratories (BCL), Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH). We are located at 757 Museum Drive, Mobile, Alabama 36608.

Our laboratory staff lends support to several public health programs through analytical services and instruction to county health departments, environmental agency partners, private citizens, and healthcare providers.

The Mobile facility houses two branches (Clinical Branch and Environmental Branch), each organized into testing sections. The Clinical Branch performs testing of maternity patients and sexually transmitted diseases (STD) specimens using the same methods and processes as the STD Division in Prattville. In addition to testing for drinking water and rabies performed at the Prattville Laboratory, the Environmental Branch works with the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) to perform analysis of public recreational water monitoring sites along the Gulf of Mexico. Shellfish growing waters and products for the market are tested in coordination with the ADPH Seafood Branch. Both branches function with other counterparts to advance the health of the citizens of Alabama.
