The OligoScan technology allows you to make a quick and precise analysis of the trace elements and heavy metals in the tissues of your patients.
The measurement is made directly in your office with a portable spectrophotometer device approved by OligoScan. The collected data from your patient is sent to the secure central Oligoscan server within a few clicks. And within 20 seconds, you get the results back.
This test is a revolutionary technique to check the mineral status of your patients in real time. For a health care provider, it allows you to know the most efficient supplementation that would maximize the nutritional benefits for your patients. In case of heavy metal toxicity, you can prescribe chelating techniques, supplements and/or lifestyle changes. Even more importantly, efficient mobilization is easily discernible with the Oligoscan and our upcoming clinician videos will explain all the details.
OligoScan is the most innovative testing methodology with the fastest turn around of results available anywhere in the world. The technology is an invaluable screening tool for actual tissue levels of minerals as opposed to other testing which is only indicative of what is being pulled out of that particular vector. Together with the urine, fecal, hair and blood measurements, the Oligoscan result transforms the information you have analogous to a 2 dimensional picture and turns it into a 3 dimensional holographic projection within which you can now practically interact.
The data is invaluable and makes for a very precious prevention tool allowing for a longitudinal follow-up of your patients’ mineral status, key mineral ratios, heavy metal levels, mobilization of those metals and overall oxidative stress.read more
The OligoScan technology utilizes spectrophotometry to obtain results on the amount of trace elements and heavy metals exist within tissue, calibrated specifically for a specific area of the body.
This is a quantitative analytical methodology, which consists in measuring the absorbance level or the optical density of a specific chemical or mineral substance.
The basic principle is that every type of compound, regardless if it is chemical or mineral based, absorbs, emits or reflects light (electromagnetic radiation) over a certain specific 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.
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.read more
