Has anyone had an analysis of the fluid captured by the catch can?

Most say it is oily or a different color. Is it truly pure oil, or a mixture of many combustion byproducts that looks like oil but really has a low percentage of oil content?

Just an update on my catch can use. I have a 2014 Base Model 2LT Torch Red, took delivery 11 October 2013. Installed Elite catch can at 9875 miles. Now have 37,445 miles. Total "Oil" removed from catch can at oil changes over the last 27,570 miles was 12.7 oz. That is 0.461 oz/1000 miles. Glad that did not all go into my intake manifold.
