Synthetic Steroids Array - PT. RAFA

 

Synthetic Steroids Array

 Synthetic Steroids are used as growth promoting hormones within the livestock industry. They are used extensively on animals as they encourage more efficient use of nutrients resulting leaner, supposedly 'better quality' meat. However, the risks associated with the use of synthetic steroids have long been known. Residues in meat have been linked to various medical conditions. Therefore the use of synthetic steroids is strictly regulated with compliance to these regulations being monitored.

  Simultaneous measurement of multiple synthetic steroids from a single sample   Suitable for both bovine and equine samples   Broad recognition of Gestagens
