Helping to keep racing drug free

Testing for drug use in sport extends to horse and greyhound racing codes. ChemCentre is one of only four Australian laboratories which tests equine and canine samples. Inevitably, drugs that turn up in one location or sport are soon found in another, so information sharing and collaboration are vital. ChemCentre racing chemists are in regular contact with other Australian and international laboratories, sharing information to improve everyone’s drug testing capabilities.

ChemCentre’s experience in detecting drugs in racehorses is of international standard and interest, particularly our interaction with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Laboratory Qatar and our ongoing relationship wit the Association of Official Racing Chemists (AORC). In a collaborative effort to keep ahead of new threats, ChemCentre is now working with other Australian racing laboratories, the National Measurement Institute (NMI) and University of Sydney on a new project investigating gene doping.
