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
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.

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.
