SteroidConfirm™ Steroid Testing is conducted in a certified laboratory using qualitative techniques to provide irrefutable results of possible anabolic steroid use. Results obtained through SteroidConfirm™ are on par with World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) standards for accuracy.
Each Kit Contains:
- Collection Beaker (6.5oz) with Temperature Strip
- Biohazard Specimen Bag
- Laboratory Test Requisition Form (non-confidential and MRO verified test)
- FedEx Mailer Bag with a Pre-Addressed Overnight Shipping Label (for those within the US)

Our SteroidConfirm™ test uses the most sophisticated, sensitive, and specific equipment and technology available: chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS), to screen and confirm illegal steroids, diuretics and stimulants. Additionally, all testing is on par with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) standards for accuracy. You have the option to perform a confidential test (no personal information is required) or a test with a Chain of Custody which will be reviewed by our Medical Review Officer.
Our easy to read report differentiates our test from the multitude of cheaper self-steroid tests available on the market today. View a sample report here.

What is an Anabolic Steroid?
Anabolic steroids are a class of steroid hormones that are related to the hormone testosterone which is known to build muscle tissue as well as being the primary hormone for development of male secondary sex characteristics. Anabolic steroids
are synthetic hormones that can boost the body's ability to produce muscle and prevent muscle breakdown.
What are Stimulants?
Stimulants are substances which provide temporary mental or physical stimulation. Side effects of stimulant use include increased
mental acuity, alertness, motivation, endurance, and heart rate. Some stimulants are legal, such as caffeine, but the use of stimulants in
specific industries may not be permitted.
What are Diuretics?
Diuretics encourage excretion of bodily fluids through the urinary tract. They are taken to disguise the use of banned substances by
lowering their concentration in the body. However, SteroidConfirm™ testing kits can detect diuretics in specimens with certainty.
What are some side effects of steroid abuse?
Steroid abuse (using steroids other than prescribed by a doctor) can have many side effects including increased facial hair, deepening of the voice, increase in muscle mass, heart damage, reduced sperm count, development of breast tissue in men, abnormal menstrual cycles in women, acne, increase in appetite, increased risk of heart attacks and strokes as well as increased tendon and muscle injury.
What type of testing does your lab perform to detect steroid in urine?
Our laboratory uses a test method called gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) which provides highly accurate results. The abuse of anabolic steroids and performance-enhancing drugs has become a national concern and is not limited to body builders and professional athletes anymore. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reports that steroid abuse is widespread among all ages and many don’t believe steroid use is risky. Under federal law, steroids are classified as Schedule III in the U.S. Androgenic-anabolic steroids and performance-enhancing drugs are also banned by major, amateur and professional sports.
What is the detection window for steroid use?
The window of detection for steroids varies drastically. At the low end of the spectrum the window is only 2-3 days when taking short term pills to as long as 12-18 months for those using oil based injections. 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 by synthetic steroids, meaning the levels of testosterone are usually off kilter when someone is abusing steroids. WARNING AND COLLECTION INFORMATION:
It is important that the collector get the specimen to the lab as soon as possible. Degradation of the sample is possible if not refrigerated or frozen within 5 days of collection. 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. Please note- the MRO report is only available with Chain of Custody tests.
