    according to a google search, morphine is only detectable on average for 3 days for urine and 4 for saliva. only 12hrs by blood. However, by hair it's 90 days.

    I looked up methadone too. for blood, 2-3days. saliva, 2. urine, 2 weeks, hair 90 days.

    Not only that, but its not banned out of competition for weightlifting, somebody didn't get their TUE's in order or exceeded the limits.

    USAW and USADA have confirmed that they're continuing the pilot program for blood-spot testing:

    Someone is going to have to help me out on this one - isn't it the case that nearly 100% of adverse findings come from urine analysis? Unless I am very much mistaken, WADA catch next to no weightlifters via blood testing.

    Athletes who got popped for HGH were caught via blood testing e.g. Pat Mendes.

    Internationally it isn't worth it.

    Every funding for blood isn't going to urine (great sentence).

    In 2017 there were 155 positives from ~9000 urine tests and 0 from ~1600 blood tests.

    Surely the calculation needs to be more nuanced than simply looking at the number of failed tests?

    Knowing that blood samples are being drawn and stored will presumably have the effect of discouraging the use of certain PEDs.

    The benefits of DBS is that it's cheap. No blood collection officer or phlebotomist. No cold storage costs. No cold shipping costs to a WADA lab. No potential to fuck up a draw like Kathleen Winters had to deal with.

    So you can do far more tests than you could otherwise with urine or blood draws.

    I'm having a helluva time pulling up what a DBS test cost per individual, but I've been told blood costs around $1000/test and urine is a few hundred at the end of the day (Mind you, the tests themselves don't cost that much but that's what USADA charges with having a phlebotomist, someone to collect the blood, storage, and cold shipping.) This is what I was quoted back in 2015.

    I'll see about asking the Phil and maybe he remembers offhand how many DBS tests were done at 2018 AO3.
