Medical science helps UK athletes reach peak performance
Date:12/9/2010

A new hand-held medical device will help UK athletes reach the top of their game when preparing for upcoming sporting competitions. UK Sport, the UK's high performance sports agency, has reached an agreement to become the first organisation to use cutting edge technology developed by Argento Diagnostics to improve training programmes for athletes.

Elite athletes will be able to monitor various proteins which reveal details about the condition of the body known as biomarkers before, during and after training sessions. These biomarkers can give a clear indication of their physical health and the effectiveness of a particular training programme. Everyone reacts differently to training, so understanding how activities affect the body helps ensure that athletes follow the best programmes for them and avoid injury. This is particularly important for elite level athletes, where small changes in fitness can mean the difference between success and failure.

These biomarker tests are currently carried out at centralised laboratories. However the time taken to send samples to the laboratory and receive the results can limit the benefits.

Argento Diagnostics a spin out of the National Physical Laboratory, the UK's National Measurement Institute has developed a rapid diagnostic technology to solve this and other problems associated with slow clinical laboratory diagnosis. Argento's hand-held device provides a quick, full diagnosis from a single small sample (such as blood, urine or saliva), returning results within minutes. As well as providing real time data for training, the results can also quickly identify injuries or medical conditions, enabling rapid treatment before long-term damage can be done, and therefore increase chance of a quick recovery.

Argento's portable device uses nanotechnology to analyse the sample. The sample is mixed with silver nanoparticles coated with a binding unit, an antibody, against a specific biological
