Found Old Vials of Test - Are they still OK?

I found some vials of Test E, Test C, and Tren that are ....five years old! Had put then aside (they've been a cool, dry place the whole time) and forgot about them, have done other experiments since but for some reason forgot about these. What the Hell was I thinking - or not thinking? Anyway, I'm sure everyone knows what's coming...

Are they still good? I would think so, but I'm double-checking with the fine folks here who have vastly more knowledge than I do about these things. Thanks in advance!

AFAIK, the concern about old gear is microbes and bacteria and shit...


..not potency




I would start with pinning .5ml just to be careful.

Thanks! Wasn't sure if I needed to resort to "heating" the stuff or just trying a small bit to make sure the wildlife hadn't gone crazy. Everything looks clean and clear, but that doesn't mean anything.

Honestly, it depends on the carrier oil. Grape seed doesn't hold up well at all. Other oils won't spoil as easily.

I have cialis from 2007. Still works! LOL!

If it's pharm made usually meds ( pills and injectables) lasts theoretically a century
And even after that maybe starting to loose a bit of potency little by little as years go by ...

I've got a lot of older gear and no issues. You could always bake it at 200* F for an hour. Vent the bottle.

Would he be better off getting a Watson filter? Not sure if the baking would damage the hormone. Maybe someone with a better chem background can chime in

Baking wont hurt the hormone when done at around 300 degrees f or so. Just have to keep temp below the boiling point of the hormone I believe. I have done it plenty of times. You will need to vent the vial though with a needle so that it doesn't explode/pop off the stopper. He may not need to do that but I don't think it would hurt.

Main thing I would worry about is if the carrier oil has spoiled. I always used cottonseed oil. I think that is the most common. I think grapeseed oil has a slight greenish tint to it?

Grape seed oil does have slight green tint. I've never noticed a difference in potency after heating it to sterilize a vial. A filter would work too but more involved.

Thanks for the responses! I had thought about baking the vials. Not sure I'd want to spend the time running things through a Watson, etc.

If I baked the vials, would I have to add additional anti-bacterial just in case? Yeah, other questions always come up.

The UG test I was cruising on recently was around three years old and from a board sponsor. I baked it and had no issues with sterility or potency.

I'd pin it as long as it didn't look all funky and discolored :).

Heat may very well kill the bacteria but will not remove some of the bacterial toxins that are a by-product of the bacteria....for this you would need a filter.

However, hormones are very inexpensive these days, so why wouldn't you just purchase pre-made oil or purchase raw hormones and make your own fresh filtered oil? :rolleyes:

eh....id use it. You can bake it if you want the peace of mind...but it should be just fine. Especially if the stoppers were never pierced with a needle

This is key. Once it's been pierced I always finish the bottle to prevent possible contamination.

Thanks again to everyone for their input.

I kind of had the feeling that sealed vials would be OK. But edgy a bit "just because". We'll find out Monday am when the experiment begins. :headbang:

I mention this often,,but I have had gear tested that was 5 yrs past expire that came back 100% label strength. Proper storage I believe are the key.(dark,cool,dry area)
