Instant ‘track side’ horse drug testing

Cambridge biosensor company Universal Sensors and Newmarket drug surveillance research contractor, HFL, are collaborating to provide instant, ‘track side’ drugs testing for race horses.

Universal Sensors, which is contracted by Sensortec to carry out all R & D on its proprietary biosensor technology, is working with HFL to provide the test system to support the work of the Horse Regulatory Authority (HRA).

Currently, drugs testing rely on retrospective sample analysis at off-site laboratories, which result in expense and results that can take days if not weeks. The system will be based on Sensortec’s low-cost biosensor platform, which is able to detect drugs in the parts per billion range.
