Scientific information: 
Scientific info: The Salimetrics Salivary Androstenedione Enzyme Immunoassay Kit is specifically designed to standardize the detection of androstenedione in saliva samples for research and biomedical laboratories. To ensure the most accurate results, this salivary immunoassay is designed using a matrix that matches saliva. The level of androstenedione in saliva (pg/mL) is significantly lower than levels in blood (ng/mL). The standard curve range is sensitive enough to capture individual differences in the androstenedione levels expected in saliva. The current protocol uses only 50 μL of saliva per test and Salimetrics androstendione assay kit requires no separation or extractions.

Androstenedione is an additive in many products that are generally advertised as dietary supplements to enhance athletic performance. Use of these supplements has the potential to cause extreme values in this assay. It is also noteworthy that the effects of oral androstenedione administration on circulating levels of testosterone and estrogen do not account for all of the actions of these products. Target tissues of anabolic steroids contain abundant enzymes that convert circulating androstenedione to testosterone right at the site of action without necessarily affecting circulating testosterone levels.​
