Author's abstract

The use of hair as biological specimen for Drugs-Of-Abuse (DOA) testing has been well established. Numerous scientific articles regarding this subject are still being published. A major advantage of using hair specimen for analysis is the long detection window in hair. As one objective in doping analysis is to increase the length of a detection window of particular doping agents, hair analysis may be of interest. The greatest improvements regarding detection windows in doping analysis up to now have been achieved by introducing more sophisticated analytical techniques. This report describes the potential to use hair as biological specimen in doping control. Verf.-Referat
