Brazilian Doping Control Laboratory (LBCD) accreditation is reaffirmed by Wada

LBCD will perform analyses for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games

The Brazilian Doping Control Laboratory (LBCD) has had its authorization to perform analyses of athletes’ blood and urine samples reaffirmed. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) made the announcement this Wednesday, 20th July, after a technical evaluation that took place between the 5th and 7th July.

With the decision, LBCD continues the preparation to carry out approximately 6,000 analyses during the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games, more than that of the London Games in 2012. In recent weeks, LBDC’s logistical preparation for the competitions has carried on without alteration and confirms, therefore, that it will host 89 international collaborators. In August, around 300 professionals will work over three shifts to ensure results within a 24 hour period.

“The reaffirmation of LBCD’s accreditation confirms the international scientific quality of UFRJ, expresses the recognition of Brazilian science and ensures peace of mind to athletes who have trained in a disciplined way for the upcoming competitions”, said the rector of The Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Professor Roberto Leher.

LBCD’s director, professor Francisco Radler, highlighted the challenge for the organisation of teams and procedures. “We were confident that the scientific credibility of UFRJ would, once again, be recognised, and we therefore didn’t alter the scheduled work plan, given the huge challenges of the organisational logistics, on top of the technical and scientific ones”, he said.

With 5000 square meters of floor space, 85 pieces of large-scale equipment and 200 auxiliary machines distributed across 3 floors, the LBCD will repeat the strategy of previous Games, supported by volunteer directors from other Wada accredited laboratories. The arrival of international experts, in addition to cutting-edge infrastructure, will make LBDC the world’s most effective anti-doping  laboratory during the Games.

Formally Labdop, founded in 1989, the laboratory was renamed as LBCD in 2014 when it underwent extensive modernization with support from the Ministries of Sport and Education. The LBCD is part of the UFRJ Chemistry Institute, and is one of eight laboratories that make up the Laboratory for the Support of Technological Development (Ladetec), founded in 1984. It was the first laboratory in Latin America and the Caribbean to receive accreditation for doping control.
