Tissue Mineral and Heavy Metal Testing

A quick evaluation of minerals and toxic metals in the palm of the hand.

MINERAL TISSUE AND HEAVY METAL ANALYSIS – Screening of physiological imbalances helps control health issues, trace toxins & mineral deficiencies
MINERALS – Excess and Deficiencies
TOXIC METALS – Risk of Poisoning
OXIDATIVE STRESS – Aging & Health Concerns
THE ANALYSIS Instant measurements of minerals, trace elements, oxidative stress and toxic metals with the use of an Oligoscan. This analysis is a quick, precise, non-invasive and pain-free process that produces real-time results.
SIMPLE USE The measurement is taken directly by a portable spectrometer connected to a computer
CERTIFIED TECHNOLOGY The technology is based on spectroscopy
RAPID RESULTS Evaluation of trace minerals reserves, the level of oxidative stress and toxic metals


What is an Oligoscan?
The OligoScan quickly and precisely measure the trace elements and heavy metals in your tissues. Oligoscan
uses high‑frequency light spectrophotometry to provide a precise analysis of the trace elements, minerals and heavy metals in your body.
analyzes 20 essential minerals and trace elements in the body, detecting deficiencies.
measures the presence of 14 toxic heavy metals.
Safe for all, including pregnant women. The Oligoscan procedure is simple, painless and non‑invasive. A fully‑trained technician takes four photos from different points on the palm of your hand, using high‑frequency light spectrophotometry. No hair, tissue, blood or urine samples are required.
The body tries to keep levels of minerals and metals constant in the blood. It does this by moving them into and out of tissues. A blood test for minerals does not necessarily show levels in tissues (including organs). Urine tests measure what the body is capable of excreting. Hair tests measure levels weeks or even months ago.
Within seconds you will see your results on the computer screen. Your report will then be forwarded to you and/or your health practitioner. You get a comprehensive report instantly and an analysis of the results. Treatment and supplements can then be tailored based on your results.

Who can benefit?
– Men and women planning to have children. Correction of imbalances will help achieve improved health outcomes for all of the family.
– People who have grown up and/or spent most of their lives in polluted industrial cities.
– People who have been exposed to fertilizers and chemical sprays on farms.
– People who have grown up in mining towns, especially those involved with aluminium, lead, silver, and nickel.
– Post-menopausal women. Testing can indicate bone, hormonal, metabolic, immune health and much more …
– People who predominately eat processed, packaged foods or fruits and vegetables that have been pre-ripened for transport to supermarkets.
– People who smoke cigarettes or have been exposed to chemical addictions.
– People who do not excrete toxins well. Hidden heavy metals will usually be evident.
– People with dental amalgams or those planning to have metal fillings removed.
– Anyone exposed to chemicals in the household or workplace (cleaners, hairdressers, pest controllers, etc.)
– Anyone who wants to be informed about their body’s mineral deficiencies in order to ensure their future health.
Currently ONLY available for children over the age of 12. (must weigh 44kg).

Preparation for your test
Hands must be clean, with no applied creams.
For an accurate test we need to know your height, weight, and blood type (O, A, B or AB).How does the OligoScan Test work?
OligoScan uses spectrophotometry to measure the optical density of the trace elements, minerals and heavy metals present in the tissues.
It is a quantitative analytical method, which consists in measuring the absorbance or the optical density of a chemical substance. The basic principle is that every chemical compound absorbs, emits or reflects light (electromagnetic radiation) over a certain range of wavelength. The more the sample is concentrated, the more it absorbs the light within the limits of proportionality expressed in the Beer-Lambert Law.
The spectrophotometry is used in many domains: chemistry, pharmacy, environment, food-processing industry, biology, medical /clinical, material/chemical engineering and clinical applications and many others.
In the clinical applications, spectrophotometry is used to examine blood or tissues for clinical diagnosis.

Scientific studies
The negative impact of heavy metals on the human and animal organism is demonstrated by numerous studies published by research institutes such as WHO, FAO and other organisations.
The massive exposure to these toxic agents becomes a real public danger. Transported by the pollution of the air, the earth and water (ground waters and sea water), heavy metals pollute the human body either directly by contact or indirectly trough the food chain.
Some of these substances are also in products, which are in touch with the body. The institutions for sanitary issues consider that there are almost no more places in the world which are not concerned by this problem.
The elimination of these toxic metals out of the human body by appropriate chelating agents becomes a major challenge for health.
Furthermore, scientific studies alert us on another challenge. They point out the dramatic depletion of nutrients in food, accompanied with an increase of food additives cause numerous problems in the body.
An individualized supplementation favors the optimized functioning of the body and represents, in this context of decrease of nutritional density and quality of food, a main advantage to stay healthy.
Concerning the measuring method of OligoScan, the spectrophotometry is used in numerous scientific and industrial processes.
Comparative studies of the OligoScan test results with traditional biological analysis show a correlation in the expected standards.
