Agilent’s Participation in Winter Sports Events

As major worldwide sports events begin this winter season, Agilent is there behind the scenes.

Agilent is collaborating with the Doping Control Center in Seoul, South Korea, to ensure that athletes from around the world are quickly and accurately tested, to determine whether any have been using banned substances to enhance their performances.

Agilent has been a major supplier of analytical instruments to the Doping Control Center since 1984. During this winter’s events, we will have certified engineers on standby around the clock.  The center is expected to run 4,000 urine tests during multiple work shifts.

Agilent’s highly-automated systems can provide rapid test results at a glance, using proven screening methods for identifying banned substances in sports.  In addition to providing advanced instrumentation, we help labs develop further methods for detecting banned substances, train investigators, and provide technical support and maintenance of the instruments.

“To ensure the most reliable performance of instruments during this critical drug-testing period, strong and timely support from Agilent is essential.” Says Oh-Seung Kwon, Ph.D., director and principal research scientist at the Doping Control Center
