Objectives: The aim of this study was to identify active ingredients present in counterfeit drugs and pharmaceutical preparations seized from the black market among bodybuilders. Preparations in closed or sealed packaging with different batch numbers ( n  = 74) and two preparations without labels were analyzed. Methods: The identification scheme was based on reversed-phase liquid chromatography with a photodiode array UV detector and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Methanolic sample… 

Qualitative and Semiquantitative Analysis of Doping Products Seized at the Swiss Border

A comprehensive sample of confiscated doping products was analyzed, allowing for monitoring of developments regarding the use of doping substances in Switzerland and for anticipating future trends and challenges in sports drug testing.

Forensic analysis of anabolic steroids tablets composition using attenuated total reflection Fourier transform infrared microspectroscopy (µATR‐FTIR) mapping

This methodology is promising for the analysis of anabolic steroid tablets, and can be used in a complementary way with techniques already consolidated in forensic laboratory routine for a better classification of questioned samples between authentic and falsified ones.

ANALYTICAL APPROACHES APPLIED TO THE ANALYSIS OF APPREHENDED FORMULATIONS OF ANABOLIC ANDROGENIC STEROIDS.

Results indicated that extraction procedures influenced the detected concentration of AASs as the use of ultrasonic probe and microwave irradiation increased the overall extraction of anabolic agents compared to SLE, LLE and UBAE.
