Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced that it has hosted the first of three leadership delegations from China’s Anti-Doping Agency, as China prepares for the 2008 Olympic Games.

The meetings include technical training on anti-doping instruments and methods developed by Agilent, a primary supplier of technology to China’s Anti-Doping Agency since 1988.

The China Anti-Doping Agency is one of the largest and most technologically advanced testing facilities in the world; it will examine more than 4,500 samples from athletes during the 2008 Olympic Games.

The agency has equipped its Beijing lab with Agilent liquid chromatography (LC), gas chromatography (GC) and mass spectrometry (MS) instruments to confirm the chemical identity of suspected banned substances found in testing samples.

Agilent is providing 18 LC/MS units and 19 GC/MS units for drug testing at the 2008 Olympic Games.

“China has quickly become a world model for anti-doping efforts,” said Du Lijun, director of China’s Anti-Doping Agency.

“Agilent’s liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry instrumentation will help make China’s Anti-Doping Agency testing in the 2008 Olympic Games the most technologically advanced yet.”
