SA Laboratories is pushing the advancement of anti-doping science. We do so with ongoing innovative research and state-of-the-art equipment. Some of our research interests include: biomarker analysis of whole blood, serum and urine, development of direct detection procedures, and population analysis directed at a priori distributions.
GC/MS stands for gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. GC/MS provides identification of the target compound(s) based on characteristic fragmentation patterns at specific retention times. SA Laboratories uses GC/MS for the detection of most banned substances in urine. GC/MS is particularly important in evaluating endogenous steroid profiles.
LC/MS/MS stands for liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry. LC/MS/MS provides identification of the target compound(s) based on characteristic parent/daughter ion fragmentation patterns at specific retention times. When liquid chromatography is suitable for separation of compounds, LC/MS/MS can provide significantly greater sensitivity than GC/MS. SA Laboratories employs LC/MS/MS for the identification of substances in “white powders” – such as when certification of dietary supplements – and for certain compounds in urine where GC/MS is not sufficient.
Gel Electrophoresis is a technique used to examine large molecules, such as most proteins and glycol-proteins. Gel Electrophoresis involves the separation of compounds on the basis of their mass, followed by immunofluorescence detection. SA Laboratories uses Gel Electrophoresis primarily in Epogen and hGH analysis.
There are a variety of Immunoassay techniques employed by SA Laboratories. Each involves the binding of a target compound in a non-separated sample to an antigen with high specificity. SA Laboratories utilizes immunoassay techniques primarily as a screen assay for “drugs of abuse.”
Custom analysis of supplements or other material for the purpose of establishing the existence or absence of a contaminating prohibited substance.
