A podcast interview with Lasse Vestli Bækken of the Norwegian Doping Control Laboratory.

What is the Athlete Biological Passport – or ABP – and how does it work?

We spoke to Lasse Baekken of the Norwegian Doping Control Laboratory, who has been working with the athlete biological passport in anti-doping since 2015.

Lasse is responsible for the daily operations of the Nordic APMU and the hematological module of the Athlete Biological Passport. He’s also involved in the analysis of whole blood samples (hematological ABP module) and EPO analysis.

This makes him the perfect guide to the ABP for athletes and their support personnel.
