How does this device work ?

The method used by OligosScan to obtain the results on the amount  of trace elements and minerals, in the tissues is optical. It is a quantitative analytical method which consists of measuring the absorbance or the optical density of a chemical substance.

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.

The optical methods are used in the following domains: chemistry, pharmacy, environment, food-processing industry, biology, medical, clinical, industrial and many others.

In the clinical applications, the optical methods are used to examine the blood or the tissues for clinical investigation.
