Somatropins and hormone related protein in living animals and animal products

Illegal use of growth promoters with a protein or peptide-like character and growth hormone releasing peptides, escape the regular monitoring because the sample reprocessing are not fit for this type of compounds.

To identify abuse of these products (eg somatotropins) there is a need for multi-analyte analysis methods for protein and peptide grow-hormones in living animals and animal products. The aim of this project is to develop screening and confirmatory methods for regular monitoring.

The results and new know-how will be published in reports, scientific publications and through lectures at conferences.
