Sportradar has launched a solution to support the clean sport movement – a Remote Testing System will enable anti-doping organisations to collect doping control samples remotely.
The system aims to benefit both athletes and sporting bodies as they navigate logistical issues with executing the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games during a pandemic.
Sportradar has utilised a range of technological innovations and procedures to conduct anti-doping testing and monitoring, with the aim of achieving key objectives, including ensuring that monitoring and target-testing are efficient and cost-effective, and maintaining that investigations are comprehensive, timely and unbiased.
The company’s ‘tech-based remote testing system’ can be integrated into sports bodies and integrity associations’ testing workflows, enabling greater flexibility for anti-doping organisations whilst ‘making life easier’ for the athletes involved.
Services include urine testing, dry blood testing and exhale breath testing, whilst leveraging blockchain technology to ensure a ‘secure process and data exchange’.
Meanwhile, the company also uses contactless methods, allowing its clients to conduct anti-doping tests ‘anywhere, anytime’.
“Just like training methods in sports equipment doping has become more and more sophisticated – so testing has to follow suit,” the firm detailed.
“That means, among other things, using the very latest technology and methods as a technology leader in the world of sports, we’ve helped protect the integrity of sport for more than two decades, and we want to use the same technology first approach in the fight against doping.”
