|SteroidConfirm™, an accurate and affordable diagnostic anabolic steroids test for convenient use in the home, workplace or school, utilizes the most sophisticated, sensitive and technology available. |
Traditionally, the abuse of anabolic steroids has been linked to athletes who want to improve their athletic performance. While this still remains to be the case, steroid abuse has become prevalent among individuals, both men and more increasingly women, to increase muscle size and reduce body fat. Individuals of various ages abuse steroids, but it is the abuse among high school students which is a particular problem.
SteroidConfirm™ is comparable to World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) panels, detecting a full list of prescription androgenic anabolic steroids, prohormones, designer anabolic steroids, essential masking agents, anti-estrogen agents and diuretics.

|HOW DOES THE STEROID TEST WORK? |
SteroidConfirm™ enables sports trainers, employers and parents to test individuals who they suspect may be abusing steroids. Simply take a urine specimen at home, in the workplace or at school, and mail to our laboratory using the pre-paid shipping pack. You have the option to perform a confidential test (no personal information is required) or a steroid test with a Chain of Custody¹.
MOST ACCURATE TECHNOLOGY AVAILABLE
Using Liquid Chromatograph Tandem Mass Spectrometry (LC/MS/MS), the most sophisticated and sensitive technology available for the steroid testing community, STEROIDCONFIRM™ can accurately quantify substances well below the cut-off levels. Each specimen is tested directly with this instrument - there is no screening process.
The added benefit of Tandem Mass Spectrometry (MS/MS) is the unsuppressed selectivity achieved by incorporating a collision cell. The LC/MS/MS system not only measures each compound directly, but it also breaks apart the compounds in the collision cell to give a second parameter of identification for each compound. This
methodology provides highly accurate results.
SteroidConfirm™ can detect a wide variety of illegal substances from the urine samples and makes cheating impossible for the participant. The innovative design of the sample collection device makes it easy to collect as well as allowing you to send the samples through the mail without damage or spilling of the sample ensuring the accuracy of the tests. The huge range of substances that it can detect and the high clarity and readability of the result reports differentiate this test from the multitude of cheaper steroid tests swarming the market today.
OUR CERTIFICATIONS INCLUDE:
- AAB American Association of Bioanalysists
- CLIA Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments
- Heavy Metals Institute
- SAMHSA Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration (Pending)
- DEA Licensed (To ensure all State and Federal standards for USP NF (797) Pain Drug (CSP) are followed.)
Our CLIA Accredited Laboratory uses state-of-the-art Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) with Mass Spectrometry X2 (LC/MS/MS) technology to determine the amount of lead present.
DETECTION TIME FRAME
The window of detection for steroids varies drastically. At the low end of the spectrum the window is only 2-3 days. On the high end, a couple of months. Steroids, similar to THC, are not water soluble. With testosterone, because it occurs naturally you will almost always detect the hormone. It is necessary to test for testosterone because the body adjusts natural production of the hormone when it is introduced to synthetic steroids, i.e. the levels of testosterone are usually off kilter.
WARNING- COLLECTION INFORMATION:
It is important that the collector get the specimen to the lab as soon as possible. Degradation is possible. The specimen must be shipped within 5 days of collection (sooner than that is even better). If it is difficult to ship right after the collection process is complete, the specimen needs to be refrigerated rather than stored at room temperature.
