This photograph taken on February 7, 2018, shows the production of BEREG-KIT for drug and doping control, at Berlinger AG facility in Ganterschwil, which are scheduled to be used for the collection of urine samples at the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games.The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) said February 1, 2018, that it had confirmed that new generation drug-testing kits could be susceptible to tampering and recommended use of an older model at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.
