Data Element


Sample Code*

The unique sample code (e.g. test kit identifier). This will be used to match the result record to the test record.

Lab ID Number (LIN)

An internal number or code assigned to each sample by the lab. This field is not mandatory, but will be stored in ADAMS if provided.

Sample Type*

A code used to identify the type of sample provided (e.g. Blood, Urine)...

Sample A/B*

"A" or "B" code to indicate whether the result record relates to the analysis of the "A" or the "B" Sample.

Date Sample Collected*

The sample collection date as recorded on the doping control form. (e.g. 2005-02-12)

Date Sample Received by Lab*

The date that the lab received the sample (e.g. 2005-02-12)

Gender of Athlete*

A code (M, F, or X) indicating the gender of the athlete as provided on the doping control form. This field is not mandatory.

Sport & Discipline*

The sport and discipline in which the athlete competes (e.g. AQ ). ADAMS will record the lab entry even though it may not exactly match the sport and discipline recorded on the sample collection order.


The name of the event (e.g. Men's 100m finals) in which the athlete was competing, as provided on the doping control form.

Sample Collection Authority*

A code indicating the short name of the Sample Collection Authority.

Country of Sample Collection

A code indicating the country in which the sample was collected.

Region of Sample Collection

A code indicating the region in which the sample was collected.

City of Sample Collection

The city where the sample was collected. This is not a mandatory field but may be used to verify a match if provided.

Test Authority

A code indicating the short name of the Test Authority.

Mission order number


Competition name

If applicable, the name of a competition

Validity*urine sample validity - tag: valid with the values "yestrue" or "nofalse"

Screen T/E Ratio

A number indicating the T/E ratio of the sample. For example, 2.6 would indicate a T/E ratio of 2.6:1. This field must only be used for samples received prior to January 1st 2014, it is not a mandatory field.


A value indicating the pH of the sample. This is not a mandatory field; if it is not provided, the implication will be that the pH of the sample is within acceptable limits.

Specific Gravity*

A value indicating the S.G. of the sample. This is a mandatory field for samples received after January 1st 2014.

Test Result*

A code indicating the test result following the sample analysis ("Negative", AAF, ATF, "NotAnalyzed").

Test Result Reason

This is not a mandatory field.

Date results reported

Date of reporting the results. This is not a mandatory field.

Analysis Type(s) Performed

A list of analysis types that were performed on the sample. E.g. "EPO", "GC/C/IRMS", "Transfusion", "HBOCS", "hGH", and "Other". Not mandatory.
For "GC/C/IRMS" a conclusion can be provided (consistent or not)


A free-text description (Analysis details/Explanation/ Opinion) of any relevant observations or analyses performed on the sample (e.g. sample tampering or received in poor condition, sample decomposition detected, unusual odor or color detected, etc.). This field is not mandatory. Please note that any departure from the International Standard for Laboratories must be reported to the Testing Authority outside of ADAMS, especially if the sample result is an adverse analytical finding.

Send notification of results to

A code indicating the short name of the organization the results have to be sent to. Multiple organizations are possible.

Steroid profile variable*

A code and value indicating the name of the variable and the corresponding value. This field is mandatory for samples received as of January 1st 2014.
Current codes are: androsterone, epitestosterone, 5b-androstanediol, 5a-androstanediol, testosterone, etiocholanolone, T/E.

Prohibited substance

The code, value and unit of the prohibited substance.

Metabolite only

A flag indicating whether merely metabolite(s) are involved

Mean concentration/ standard uncertainty

If a Threshold substance is concerned, the Mean/ Uncertainty values and units can be indicated
