This comprehensive and up-to-date 2nd edition of the Steriod Analysis handbook, written by a team of distinguished experts from around the world concentrates on the analysis of steroids in biological fluids.
This edition is based on the same format as the first, primarily dealing with analysis of low levels of steroid analytes in biological fluids, but including an extra chapter on pharmaceutical aspects of steroid analysis. Spectroscopic and other methods, including UV and IR absorption spectroscopy, NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, X-ray diffraction, chromatography and immunoassay of steroids are treated in detail. Extraction, purification and quantitation is followed by analysis of specific steroid groups, such as progestagens, estrogens, corticosteroids and anabolic steroids.
The editors have made a conscious decision to leave the first edition to stand on its own with regards to steroid analysis prior to 1995 and authors therefore were asked to review the modern post-1995 steroid scene.
This book will be of interest to analytical chemists, biochemists and chemical pathologists working on medical steroids.
