SMRTL was founded in 2003, following the 2002 Olympic Games in Salt Lake City, with financial support from the Salt Lake Organizing Committee (SLOC), the National Football League (NFL), the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and the University of Utah.  SMRTL commenced early operations in October, 2005, and began testing for a broad range of clients after receiving its accreditation by WADA in November, 2006.  The laboratory is organized as an independent non-profit corporation supported exclusively by testing revenues and research grants.

  • Exclusive focus on Client Service, no conflicts with other enterprise objectives
  • Greater flexibility in staffing for peak demands, rapid turnaround of results
  • Lower overhead, lower overall costs as volume increases
  • State-of-the-art reporting of results

SMRTL’s value proposition to its clients:

SMRTL uses the best scientific practices and state-of-the-art service
to exceed client expectations.
