Project: Analytical methodology for the detection of residues of anabolics, belonging to the group of sex steroids, in muscle tissues, by means of physico-chemical techniques.
01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
This project intends the development of physico-chemical methods for the detection and confirmation of residues of anabolic steroids in muscle tissue of cattle. The identification will be based on gaschromatography coupled to mass spectrometry. The susceptibility of this technique to impurities involves a particular attention towards the isolation and clean-up of the residues.
