Abstract (technical / expert description):


We are collaborating with two laboratories in Germany and one in Canada to determine the convergence between different methods (RIA; EIA; LC/MS) for the assessment of the steroid hormones testosterone, estradiol, progesterone, and cortsiol in saliva. Our goal is to identify those methods that are particularly valid and robust and that should therefore be used in future research.
