Sysmex and the Fight against Doping in Sports



Anti-Doping-Department, German Track and Field Association


Sysmex haematological systems are well known and used for routine haematology in many laboratories all over the world. Several universities also use Sysmex instruments for research studies in different clinical conditions. Did you know that Sysmex systems are also of great help in the fight against doping in sports? At the beginning of October 2006, Sysmex Deutschland GmbH, Germany, together with its Swiss counterpart Sysmex Digitana AG presented their systems and solutions for use in anti-doping at the World Anti- Doping Symposium of the International Association of Athletics Federations ( IAAF ) in Lausanne. Beside others, Sysmex was also one of the main sponsors of this international high-level event.
