Doping Control in Sports - Testing Procedures (Selection)

  • Screening of volatile, nitrogen-containing substances excreted unconjugated (stimulants, narcotics) in doping control samples by means of high performance liquid chromatography / mass spectrometry or gas-chromatographic analysis with mass selective and/or nitrogen-specific detection 
  • Screening of beta-blockers in doping control samples by means of high performance liquid chromatography / mass spectrometry
  • Screening of anabolic agents and more (including anabolic androgenic steroids, beta-2 agonists, glucocorticosteroids) in doping control samples by means of gas chromatography / mass spectrometry and high performance liquid chromatography / mass spectrometry
  • Screening of diuretics in doping control samples by means of high performance liquid chromatography / mass spectrometry
  • Various procedures for the identification and quantification of doping relevant substances in doping control samples by means of gas chromatography / mass spectrometry and high performance liquid chromatography / mass spectrometry
  • Quantitative determination of human choriongonadotropin (hCG) and luteinizing hormone (hLH) in urine using immunoassays
  • Measurement of the carbon isotope ratio of endogenous steroids in doping control samples by means of gas chromatography / stable isotope ratio mass spectrometry
  • Immunological detection of recombinant erythropoietin (EPO) and analogues after isoelectric focusing and/or gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE)
  • Screening for Mircera in serum samples by means of an immunoassay
  • Determination of isoforms of human growth hormone (hGH) in serum samples using a differential immunological procedure
  • Measurement of hematological parameters corresponding to the WADA guideline for the 'Athlete Biological Passport'
