Q: “Is there any way I can have anabolic steroids lab tested without the lab knowing that I've sent them anything illegal?”A: Probably yes.NMR spectra ordinarily are not interpreted by labs: instead, only the spectrum itself is provided and it's the customer's job to interpret the spectrum.Molecules are of course made up of individual atoms arranged in a particular … [Read more...] about Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectroscopy for the Identification of Anabolic Steroids
Q: “Can I ever tell if anabolic steroid tablets are fake without having to send them off for analysis? Is there a way other than just noticing no results from them?”A: There actually is a simple way to do this. It will not tell if the correct steroid is present, and in some cases in will indicate that there is a substance present when that substance is not a steroid, but in … [Read more...] about Home Testing Method for the Identification of Fake Anabolic Steroid Tablets
Q: “I'm considering using an analytical lab for steroid testing. I see there are various kinds of test like HPLC-UV and GC/MS. Can you tell me about them, and which should I use?”A: In contrast to colorimetric tests (Labmax), which show some chemical effects when mixtures are applied to them, HPLC-UV and GC/MS attempt to separate mixtures into their individual components … [Read more...] about Analytical Laboratory Testing for the Identification of Anabolic Steroids
Q: “What do you think of the Labmax anabolic steroid test kits? Can I really trust the results?”A: I have not used these test kits myself but from knowledge of analytical chemistry and information that is available about them, I can give you some further information.These are colorimetric tests, where some rather general chemical reactions occur, such as reactions with … [Read more...] about Labmax Test Kits for the Identification of Anabolic Steroids
Q: “What do you think of AOD 9604? I like the idea of promoting fat loss without the possibility of causing GH belly or nerve pain. Is it legit?”A: AOD-9604 (HGH residues 177-191 with a tyrosine added to the N-terminus) certainly promotes fat loss in rats and mice. So far as is known, it works in them only by increasing the number and activity of beta-3 receptors.In … [Read more...] about AOD-9604 Peptide for Fat Loss
Q: "I've always been a blood donor. It's something worth doing for others, but also I understand that men really have very little mechanism for eliminating excess iron from the blood, so it's probably good for my health as well. I've always read that blood shouldn't be donated while on a cycle. Truth or myth?"Those who say that blood should not be donated while on an … [Read more...] about Are Recipients Harmed by Blood Donations Made by Anabolic Steroid Users?
