The OligoScan uses Spectrophotometry to measure the optical density of trace elements, minerals and heavy metals currently present in the tissues of the body. Using cutting edge technology, the Oligoscan makes mineral analysis available in the clinic within minutes.
No more hair samples or blood draws required. We require your Blood type (A, B, O) to ensure accurate results at the time of your test and request you have this before your appointment. An additional fee applies for a Blood Type Test if required.
How does it work?
The basic principle is that every chemical compound absorbs, emits, or reflects the light (electromagnetic radiation) on a certain range of wavelengths. The more the sample is concentrated, the more it absorbs the light within the limits of proportionality expressed in the law Beer-Lambert. In this way the device can assess the different concentrations of certain wavelengths and provide instant reports of the relevant concentration of the mineral in the tested area.
Testing minerals, trace elements and heavy metals in patient’s tissues gives a more precise understanding of their bioavailability and utilisation than testing levels in blood circulation. This revolutionary new technique provides a fast way to precisely assess a client’s mineral and heavy metal status.
