Swiss Laboratory for Doping Analyses

The Swiss Doping Analysis Laboratory, the only anti-doping laboratory in Switzerland, can report on urine analyses within 10 working days of receiving samples. In addition, in recent years the LAD has acquired extensive experience in the management and development of methods relating to blood samples. Because of its renown it plays an active part in analyses and expert evaluations at many national and international sporting events.

In addition to laboratory services stipulated by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), the missions of the LAD include a teaching role at the Faculty of Biology and Medicine (FBM) and also at the Institute of Sport Sciences and Physical Education (ISSEP) of the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences of the University of Lausanne.

The academic membership of the LAD stimulates research and development activity which is recognized also in the anti-doping field. The most recent publications based on research carried out at the LAD are accessible on the website.
