However, in France, researchers have managed to penetrate the secret stories of drug use that RNA from equidae can uncover, and their techniques could soon result in new drug testing techniques that can uncover even the most secret cases of drug use. "As Ludovic Bailly-Chouriberry, PhD, Laboratory Manager of the LCH Laboratory, in Verbires le Buisson, said, "We have devised a methodology that allows us to use commercially available RNA sampling kit for the production of horse RNA so that we can precisely quantify genetic information within single horse individuals over the long run.
In essence, this means working with a horse's "biological passport" - a recording of his lectures made through the "mics ", the arm of scientific practice that refers to concepts ending with the extension-comics. Biological passports are built on the idea of comparing a horse's own biological story, said Bailly-Chouriberry.
This applies in particular to genetic fingerprinting. When a horse unexpectedly shows a change in genetic information, this could indicate a possible drug use. Mr. Bailly-Chouriberry and his colleagues adopted a basic RNA specimen collection set that benefited from a specific tubing for storage of the patientÂ? own plasma. He also said the kits included an extracellular RNA purifying system that the scientists genetically engineered to work effectively with horse heifers.
They later determined that they had to addition an extra cleaning stage after extracting to keep the specimen clean for tests, Bailly-Chouriberry said. In addition, they tried optimum horse RNA harvesting and storing techniques, he said. Her research showed that vets should fill the vials to the maximal capacitance (2.5 mL) and keep them at 4°C during transportation to obtain RNA materials in adequate amount and grade for anti-doping tests, and then at -20°C until analysed.
Under these circumstances and after the detailed technological modification identified by the research group, the commercial available test kits can be used safely in equine applications. The right sampling techniques call for special instruction of the practising vets, Bailly-Chouriberry continues.
