As we draw a close on the Rio Olympics, we review a major point of discussion that emerged before the games even began – prohibiting the use of performance-enhancing drugs.
To celebrate the commencement of this year’s Olympic Games at Rio we have gathered some of the top anti-doping content from Bioanalysis and Bioanalysis Zone for you to enjoy!
In this podcast interview, Dr. Olivier Rabin discusses some of the challenges being faced in anti-doping analysis and how the World Anti-Doping Agency is providing solutions to overcome these challenges.
In this review, the authors discuss the literature regarding various quantification methods for measuring prohibited substances in athletes as they pertain to World Anti-Doping Agency regulations.
Young scientists from Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) develop a prototype device for rapid meldonium testing.
The device – the Chem-Phys patch – measures biochemical and electrical signals in the human body and represents a first in the field.
Last week the International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced that reanalysis of the “A” samples from 23 athletes who participated in the London 2012 Olympic Games have confirmed the presence of prohibited substances.
Researchers have developed a prototype device to test for performance-enhancing drugs, which offers rapid results and an easy-to-use and inexpensive interface.
