Confirmatory analysis of steroids in muscle using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

A method is described for screening and confirmation of synthetic and endogenous steroids in muscle tissue. The method is sensitive, selective, and rapid and the consumption of organic solvents is low, compared to previously published methods. The procedure involves hydrolysis, defattening with heptane and final clean up with SPE using C18 cartridge. After filtration, the analytes are analysed by LC/MS/MS and quantification is performed using deuterated internal standards. Decision limits (CCα) varied from 0.02 to 0.33 μg kg-1 and the detection capabilities (CCβ) were
