Drugs in Sport Analysis

Athletes sprintingNMI's sports drug testing laboratory (known worldwide as the Australian Sports Drug Testing Laboratory or ASDTL) complies with the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025:2005 and is accredited by NATA (7.71).

We are the only laboratory in the Australian region accredited by the World Anti-Doping Agency to carry out doping control analysis in human sport and as such perform virtually all of the sports drug testing carried out in Australia and New Zealand. Samples are collected and shipped to us by the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority and Drug Free Sport NZ.

Drug testing is not just carried out at major sporting events but is a year round activity with the analysis of some 8000 samples per year from a range of amateur and professional sports.
