Steroid Melting Point Testing Guide

Post by kellylmc on Mon Oct 29, 2018 11:00 pm

Sourcing Steroid powders online is east right now, but the main concern should be ensuring you receive high quality and pure products at the end of it. We would like to show you how to test the Steroid powders you receive from us so that you have true piece of mind, there are other methods to test compounds including the color tests from LabMax or HPLC tests completed by professionals but neither will show anything more than the traditional melting point test, after all it is what was being used before other tests were even invented.

Every Steroid has a different melting point and some steroids are even totally liquid at room temperature like Boldenone Undeclyenate (EQ). This means that it is possible to test the purity of your Steroid powders by heating them to their expected melting point - if the product is pure it will entirely melt at this temperature and over a small spread, i.e 1-3 celcius.

Steroid Melting Point Test Process

Because we are testing something specific, it is important to be specific in your procedure and so the first step is acquiring a means to accurately control the temperature, ideally you are heating the product by using an electronic Hot-Plate however oil/water baths and thermometers are also a good option. Please note ovens do not provide any kind of meaningful result because the temperature of an oven is constantly fluctuating and we intend to see exactly how the compound reacts around its melting point.

All you need to complete this test is the melting point of the product, a Hot-Plate/water bath/oil bath and thermometer and you are 15 minutes away from not only confirming that you have the compound you want, but also that it is very high purity - without exception!

DIY Melting Point Test Instructions

1.) Place some aluminum foil on the surface of the Hot-Plate / oil / water and ensure it is in contact across the entire surface. If this can not be achieved use a cooking pan on top of the electronic Hot-Plate.

2.) Place a small amount of the Compound on the Foil, only a tiny amount is required, big enough that that you can judge where it begins to melt but not so much that it will melt unevenly.

3.) Set the Hot-Plate/water/oil bath to just below the correct temperature range based on the confirmed melting point of the compound.

4.) Raise the temperature by 1c every 30s, all of the compound must dissolve within 1-3 celcius and at/within the confirmed melting point range of the compound - provided this occurs you are looking at 98-99%+ purity compound.

There are many ways to perform a melting point test and the above is about as DIY as you should intend to go, alternative methods include the use of capillary tubes or automatic melting point test machines. But if performing a melting point test seems a little too involved for you, no problem, you can still confirm you are working with the highest purity compounds using a LabMax test, HPLC test and so on. You can also send your powders to Janoshik's Lab for purity testing.
