Analytical laboratories involved in health-related research are becoming a fundamental part of the advancement of science in this field. Of particular interest to clinical, legal, toxicological, forensic and environmental matters is the analysis of drugs and medications present in biological fluids of consumers or exposed subjects. The established sensitive and reliable work of sports drug-testing laboratories represents an interesting example of a multidisciplinarity approach toward widespread bioanalytical problems. The experiences reported in this article will be of general interest, especially for analysts studying the determination of substances in biological material.
