Steroid testing is performed by taking a urine specimen and sending it off to a laboratory for confirmation. The test will detect the presence of steroids in the urine sample.
Anabolic steroids are an important class of abused drugs that have lately been spotlighted in the media. In order to maintain fair play in sporting events, they are banned by many sporting federations. Yet, the use and abuse of anabolic steroids continues today in the United States. Steroid use is not only damaging to the integrity of sports; it also poses many potential health risks. The population of people using anabolic steroids is no longer limited to professional athletes looking to gain an edge. Studies show that children may use steroids as early as the 8th grade. Many schools and sporting agencies find that testing for steroid abuse is not only advisable, but necessary.

Customized Steroid/Drug Panels available upon request
The Most Advanced Technology Available
Our Laboratory has the most accurate technology available for the steroid testing community. Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) is research quality laboratory equipment, and can accurately quantify substances well below cutoff levels. This technology surpasses Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS), which in the past has been labeled the “gold standard.” Our Laboratory currently owns and operates 4 LC/MS/MS instruments and we are constantly investing in technology. Our Laboratory is the platinum standard.
Collection Process & Shipment
The urine collection device developed by our Laboratory is as innovative as the testing process. A syringe within a sealable tube minimizes accidental spills or specimens destroyed in transport. The design provides ample volume of specimen for the lab and is less bulky than urine transport cups. Because Our Laboratory’s collection devices are compact and lightweight, this reduces transportation costs.
