ABP in Next Gen

The new ABP module is finally here and accessible via the following link:

  • The launch of the Endocrine Module and of new steroid markers measured in blood (serum) samples as part of the Steroid Module; and
  • The launch of the Next Gen ABP Module ADAMS.  
  • The ABP dashboard will replace the current notification system in ADAMS
  • the current version of the ABP module will be retired and will no longer be available to our users, as the two versions cannot co-exist in ADAMS; 
  • As of tomorrow, WADA-accredited Laboratories will also be able to begin uploading data for samples analyzed for the Endocrine Module and/or the new blood steroid markers.  

You can access to the ABP user guides in the following link:
