Synacthen cannot be detected. IGF-1 neither. I think there were mooted tests for insulin, but I do not believe that can be detected neither.
I think the epo is redundant, as all evidence is, the autologous transfusions, can keep 'crit and hemoglobin and retics within ambiguous parameters.
Then ofcourse, are the means like plasma expanders, but I do not see this as relevant like BB does. I think most are at or near natural crits. Under 45. How they get 45, with equivalent hemaglobin of 55, is transfusions, and you can see that on the road. The others are not doing anything, and are not boosted, they are at natural crits of about 43. Mondory et al. Ofcourse, everyones natural crit is different.
Armstrong and the other dopers will be on experimental oxygen delivery drugs, not yet to market, that make it more efficient, and get the O2 to the muscles. They will be on everything that cannot be tested for, and androgens which cannot show up on the MCGC testing.
My mail was in 98, Armstrong at the Vuelta was bragging about an equine steroid he had, that no one else had. He has moved on since, but this demonstrates his mentality.
