Sports Drug Testing Service

Working with sports teams, schools and sport governing bodies across the UK, Forensic Resources Ltd use the latest technology to provide a professional sports drug testing and post drug conviction expert witness analysis service. 

The primary focus of sports drug testing for competing athletes is ‘doping' - or the consumption of substances that promote muscle growth - or increase and improve strength and endurance. On a local level, sports testing may be limited, but on a national and international level, it has become highly organised.

Test results are considered positive if compounds are found in quantity in the body, though some of the substances, such as anabolic steroids (testosterone) and peptide hormones such as erythropoietin, growth hormone, and Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 are banned but are difficult to measure as they are naturally produced by the body. During competitions, testing is frequently applied randomly and on all winners, and includes Anabolic Steroids, Human Growth Hormone, Erythropoietin (EPO) and other hormone antagonists, diuretics, stimulants and narcotics that are also commonly used. Sports such as archery, gymnastics, and shooting add additional testing for substances like beta blockers, which are prohibited in these sports because they decrease blood pressure and heart rate.

Our expert toxicologists are not WADA accredited but our professional sports drug testing service can provide drug testing for the presence of a wide range of performance enhancing drugs, including those mentioned above. We can work on a one off basis or we can have an ongoing testing regime with your sports team, or international federation, to test on a random basis.
