To support our steroid testing service, RTL employs Dr. Victor Uralets, formerly Director of Sports Testing at Quest Diagnostics. Dr. Uralets has 26 years of drug testing laboratory experience with 11 years focused on Olympic laboratory testing. Dr. Uralets holds a doctorate degree in organic chemistry from the Institute of Organoelement Compounds of the Russian Academy of Sciences and a bachelor of science degree in chemistry from Moscow State University. With the addition of Dr. Uralets to its staff, RTL offers the same confidence in testing for steroids as it does for urine and oral fluid drug testing .
This is evidenced in history during the Olympics, where East Germany ran a state-sponsored program known as State Plan Research Theme , which as a program designed to circumvent the IOC testing procedures and have all of their Olympic athletes (both knowingly and unknowingly) utilizing anabolic steroids in an effort to undetectably gain an advantage over other competitors  . The East German government implemented this program and ran it for over 20 years, and involved the use of undetectable (at the time) anabolic steroids, due to their relatively new development and unknown status.
There are five primary color-tests reagents used for general screening purposes. The Marquis reagent turns into a variety of colors when in the presence of different substances. Dille-Koppanyi reagent uses two chemical solutions which turns a violet-blue color in the presence of barbiturates. Duquenois-Levine reagent is a series of chemical solutions that turn to the color of purple when the vegetation of marijuana is added. Van Urk reagent turns blue-purple when in the presence of LSD. Scott Test's chemical solution shows up as a faint blue for cocaine base.
