"Forensic Chemistry" in the broadest sense refers to any analytical procedure performed utilizing traditional chemical principals and instrumentation in a forensic manner.
In Criminalistics, NMS Labs’ staff performs the identification and quantification of controlled substances, pharmaceutical preparations, and unknown substances. This testing is performed in a forensic manner utilizing two separate and distinct technologies whenever possible. NMS Labs has an extensive menu of methods that can be used in these forensic investigations including: HPLC, GC/MS, ICP/MS, FTIR, LC/MS and colorimetry.
Injectable steroids are injected into muscle tissue, not into the veins. They are slowly released from the muscles into the rest of the body, and may be detectable for months after last use. Injectable steroids can be oil-based or water-based. Injectable anabolic steroids which are oil-based have longer half-life than water-based steroids. Both steroid types have much longer half-lives than oral anabolic steroids. And this is proving to be a drawback for injectables as they have high probability of being detected in drug screening since their clearance times tend to be longer than orals. Athletes resolve this problem by using injectable testosterone early in the cycle then switch to orals when approaching the end of the cycle and drug testing is imminent.
They will have to test for steroids specifically. Your commander will have to request it. Only way he/she would do that is if you blew up real quick and threw up red flags for yourself. I've done steroids in the military and know of others. I have seen guys get popped in Iraq for using. They all blew the hell up in no time walking around acting like douche bags and the wrong person saw it. There rooms were tossed without notice and there the stashes were. They all were tested and of course all of them were hot. Their military careers were tarnished. So what I'm saying is if you want to do it just be smart about it. Be discreet, don't tell anyone shit. Make slow moderate gains and you will be ok.
