The importance of the Doping Analysis Laboratory (DAL) comes from the fact that it is the core business of our organisation.
The DAL has achieved the following Accreditations:
– The ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation from NATA, the Australian Accreditation Body.
– The WADA Blood ABP (Athlete Biological Passport) Accreditation.
– And the Full ACCREDITATION from World Antidoping Agency – WADA ( 5th August 2015 )
DAL is working now towards achieving the following accreditation:
– The Animal Testing ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation which is expected in 2015.
DAL has a distinguished team of Staff Analysts and staff Technologists who are being trained consistently on the most advanced instruments in the field like: GC/MS (2)
GC/QQQ/MS (5), GC /IRMS ISOTOPE RATIO MS (2), GC/Q/TOF/MS (1), LC / Q Orbitrap MS (5), LC/QQQ/MS (2) and Hormones in Blood and urine including but not limited to: Immulite, Electrophoresis and Flow cytometers (2).
DAL will be supported by an efficient Quality Management System and a number of databases to facilitate the work flow and make it most effective.
Led by Dr. Costas Georgakopoulos, the Lab is also involved in a number of research projects with QNRF, WADA and others. The sky is the limit for DAL and its young staff members.
