There have been many questions regarding blood work and testing protocols. This thread will outline the protocols that we will use to better judge quality of gear. The protocols will be set for the most commonly used esters of testosterone, TE/TC/TP. For this to work, there must be uniformity across the board. If you are testing gear for potency, these protocols MUST be followed. Obviously everyone is entitled to do blood work whenever and however they want but if you want it to be accepted on the board for these purposes, simply follow the protocol. This will allow us to collect data with consistency. Using the following protocol, we will be testing for PEAK TT values. -Protocol for Testosterone Enanthate/Cypionate- Duration: At least 6 weeks into cycle (I realize these esters can stabilize sooner than 6 weeks but this will leave no doubt. It’s pretty close to most members mid-cycle labs also. Blood Draw: Blood should be drawn at 48hr +/- 12hrs post pin. The goal is to be as close to 48hrs as possible. -Protocol for Testosterone Propionate- Duration: At least 14 days into cycle Blood Draw: Blood should be drawn at 24hrs +/- 8hrs post pin. The goal is to be as close to 24hrs as possible. *If there are any questions or suggestions to improve upon this and you have sources of data to back it up, by all means post it up and it will be reviewed and implemented if need be. Here is a link for privatemdlabs. This test will give TT values without being capped at 1500 ng/dl. http://www.privatemdlabs.com/lab_cart_show.php There are other testing services, so use whichever you like but please ensure it gives total values. Thank you to all who decide to follow this and post blood work for the good of the board. Your contributions are greatly appreciated.
