    Either, actually, since there are more than one type.  With the singular, you are using "steroid" as an adjective to describe the word "testing."  In the plural, you are flipping the relationship, where the term "steroids" becomes the object, "testing" is more of a descriptive...

    I propose a shorter sentence:

    "We test for steroids."

    The former is better, as it is phrased.

    Think about this sentence: We provide  relationship advice, or we provide relationships advice.

    Rule of thumb: if a noun sounds like its own plural, you can safely treat it that way whenever you are in doubt.
