Anabolic Steroid ELISAs

Anabolic steroids are synthetic derivatives of testosterone, the male hormone secreted by the testes, and include many closely related ring structures as well as their esters. Anabolic steroids promote general tissue growth. Athletes competing in various sports used anabolic steroids to increase muscle development and strength, reduce healing time after an injury, diminish fatigue, and increase aggressiveness. Now there is increasing trend of using anabolic steroids for appearance and personal fitness. The use of anabolic steroids has serious adverse health effect.

The legislative control of anabolic steroids, together with the increase in demand for these drugs, has led to a growth in the clandestine market. Some of these anabolic steroids have been approved for veterinary use and can easily be diverted for abuse by humans. Products seen in the illegal market include dietary supplements and herbal drugs marketed as capsules or tablets, which often do not contain the ingredients declared on the label.

ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) technique is based on the binding of steroid with specific antibodies and colorimetric detection of steroid presence. Our ELISAs provide sensitive, accurate and reliable quantitative determination of anabolic steroids in foodstuff and food supplements..
