Re-blog from a DFAC/BNBF Facebook post re drug testing in drug tested bodybuilding organisations. An interesting read and food for thought.

WADA Compliant!, Real WADA Testing!
I see the above statements from a number of organisations, but do these organisations really follow WADA Guidelines?
Firstly, the T/E Ratio (Testosterone/Epitestosterone Ratio) – if a T/E Raio exceeds 4/1 ( Not 6/1 ) it will be considered atypical and an IRMS test should be performed to determine whether the testosterone is of exogenous or endogenous origin. Can your organisation of choice offer that option?
There are many laboratories that can offer steroid, pro-hormone and stimulant detection. But only WADA approved labs can offer detection of SARMs, SERMs, Peptide Hormones including Growth Hormone Releasing peptides, etc. So, does your organisation of choice use a fully WADA Compliant Lab?
Section S3 of the WADA Prohibited List states that “All selective and non-selective beta-2agonists, including all optical isomers are prohibited “. However, some organisations seem quite happy to allow the use of some beta-2agonists and are, also, willing to overlook the use of some stimulants.
The BNBF/DFAC are committed to giving competitors a level playing field. We use WADA Guidelines and our testing is carried out at a fully compliant WADA Laboratory.
Hopefully other organisations can offer you the same standard of service.
