Evaluation of membrane-assisted isoform immunoassay (MAIIA) for direct detection of rhEPO in doping

Resource description

Project Title: Evaluation of Membrane Assisted Isoform Immunoassay (MAIIA) for direct detection of rhEPO in doping, a new rapid method with potential for on-the-site- as well as for out-of-competition testing

Researchers: J. Carlsson, M. Lönnberg, M. Garle

Institution: Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden

Year accepted: 2004

Summary: The purpose of this eight-months pre-project was to evaluate a new technology as a basis for a rapid and easy-to-use erythropoietin (EPO) doping test. The proposed test-procedure will distinguish recombinant EPO and EPO analogues from the endogenous forms by utilizing the differences in their glycosylation structures.
