Drug Test Kits in Australia – Performance Enhancing Drugs

A huge range of self-test kits are available these days, from COVID-19 to pregnancy tests, all with different accuracy levels, methods and purposes. We take a look at why PED testing is so important.

PED Test Australia have some of the most advanced at-home anabolic steroid testing kits available in the country. PED Test Australia steroid testing kits are an effective solution to test the presence and potency of performance enhancing drugs. This helps users identify brands and suppliers that prove to be selling poor quality or scam products.

If you are currently using or thinking about using performance enhancing drugs (PEDs), we would like you to make an educated and informed decision about these products, prior to using.

Even though PEDs themselves aren’t addictive in the same way as narcotics – body dysmorphia and the depression side-effects that can occur when cycling off PEDs can be something you might need help with. If you are concerned about your PED use, or struggle with the idea of stopping using PEDs in the future, Counselling Online is a free, confidential drug counselling service, available 24/7 across Australia – https://www.counsellingonline.org.au/.

What Are PED Test Kits?

Steroid test kits provide you with the ability to detect potentially harmful substituted and under- or over-dosed substances in performance enhancing drugs. Test kits produce different colour reactions to various substances. The current range can identify:

  • Testosterone Enanthate and Propionate
  • Sustanon (combinations of Test D, P, PP and I)
  • Dromostanolone Propionate (Masteron P)
  • Trenbolone Enanthate and Acetate
  • Methenolone Enanthate (Primo E)
  • Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca-Durabolin)
  • Oxandrolone (Anavar)
  • Stanozolol (Winstrol)
  • Oxymetholone (Anadrol)
  • Fluoxymesterone (Halo)
  • Mesterolone (Proviron)

Kits for other steroid types, peptides and SARMs are currently in development.

Are PED Testing Kits Legal in Australia?

 

Yes, it is legal to buy and possess steroid testing kits from PED Test Australia. They do not contain controlled substances.

Why Use PED Test Kits?

 

With COVID causing reduced flights and shipping into Australia, and border closures stopping materials moving easily across state lines, the ability for underground suppliers to meet the demand for steroids has been difficult in recent years. As a consequence of this, there has been an increase in online/message platform scammers, willing to take gym-goers cash in exchange for “bunk” products containing virtually no active ingredient, or swapped/mixed ingredients. The chances of products being contaminated with harmful substances or bacteria are much higher from these scam suppliers.

PED testing is a quick and easy tool for users to confirm that the product they are planning to inject does contain the compound on the label, and in the expected dosage range. The user is then able to make a more informed decision on the risks of using that product.

What can the Test Kits be used on?

Our test kits are used to test oils, capsules, tablets, or powders (raws and oral liquids may give different results, please contact us for more details). We are in the process of adding to our range, follow our Instagram for updates.

So, How Does Testing Work?

 

PED Test Australia test kits contain a very small amount of different chemical reagents in each glass vial. You add a single drop of oil (or a pinhead amount of crushed powder) to each and match the colour change to the chart included to identify the substance.

PED Test kits do not identify other contaminants, bacteria or heavy metals that may be in steroids. A positive result does not mean that the steroid is safe to use.

What if the Colour Result is Different to the Chart?

If the test kit vials have changed colour but do not match the chart included with the kit, then the steroid may have been mixed or swapped with another. You can use the full colour charts here to check the colour results for other steroid compounds.

See No Reaction?

Some oral steroids can react very slowly – give the kit 10 minutes for colours to fully develop. If after 10 minutes there is still no colour change, this indicates that there is no steroid present in your product.

This is very common in oral steroids, especially Anavar.

Often oils will contain at least a trace of steroid, as an attempt to fool test kits into giving a positive result. For this reason, we recommend using both presence and potency kits with oils where available.

 

PEDTest Australia

 

We do not promote or encourage illicit drug use. Instead, our aim is to educate and reduce the potential harm for  users. We believe that people who have a way of identifying what is in the drugs they are taking, and the dosage ranges of those drugs, will make more informed decisions and reduce their exposure to risks they might otherwise be unaware of.

PED Test Australia was started by Aussie strength athletes who were deeply concerned over the number of frauds in Australia that were targeting PED users, and the high variations in dosages and quality that were affecting the health of users.

We have a database of test kit results for over 70 underground steroid lab brands currently active in Australia, and customers are encouraged to send us results to include in the database. This database is used to produce statistics we publish on Instagram. While the entire database is not public, we do publish results of independent lab analyses done on a range of products and brands for the purposes of product development. These can be found in the saved stories on our Instagram page.
