Development of a gas chromatography/mass spectrometry based method for the detection of xenon in human urine
Project Title: Development of a gas chromatography/mass spectrometry based method for the detection of xenon in human urine
Researcher: Prof. W. Schanzer
Institution: German Sport University, Germany
Year accepted: 2014
Summary: Our goals will be to investigate the suitability of urine samples to detect xenon misuse, to further increase the sensitivity by improving sample preparation and mass spectrometric conditions, to fully validate our approach to make it suitable for doping control analysis and to search for and implement a possible internal standard to enhance reproducibility of the results. This will also encompass studies on the stability of the highly volatile xenon in urine specimens in order to elucidate if and how the analysis of this special analyte can be implemented into existing routine doping control procedures.
