The levels and limits of analytical detection have profound implications on supplement quality assurance program, demanding testing sensitivities that can only be met by highly specialized analytical laboratories, working to ISO 17025 standards. It is extremely uncommon for the manufacturing facilities used by supplement companies to have the capability to undertake such trace analysis, concentrating instead on the verification of label listings of specified contents. In most cases, supplement manufacturers will test products for other contaminants such as toxic substances, heavy metals, etc. and not necessarily for those substances that may give rise to a positive drug test for a professional athlete, such as nandrolone or ephedrine.
If you're going to use any injectable gear, then of course you're going to need some "darts." You can pick up syringes at your local pharmacy unless your state has certain restrictions. Also, you can purchase needles online. Just do a little searching around and you'll find several places that'll hook you up. Syringes will run you around 50 cents apiece. Note that it'll be more difficult to obtain needles (at least from the larger, more "legit" companies) if you live in California and Illinois. You'll usually need a doctor's prescription in those states. Still, if you look around enough, you can get what you need.
This application note describes the extraction of a range of amphetamine-type compounds from whole blood, prior to GC/MS analysis. A protocol that allows the simultaneous extraction of various other drugs of abuse classes: barbiturates, benzodiazepines, cocaine and opiates, is also evaluated.
ISOLUTE® SLE+ columns with 1 mL sample capacity are used to extract whole blood samples following a straightforward sample dilution. No protein precipitation or other pre-treatment is required prior to sample loading. The sample preparation procedure delivers clean extracts, good recoveries and RSD values and LLOQs from 10 ng/mL (analyte dependant).
