OligoScan is the revolutionary method to detect the bioavailability of trace elements and heavy metal intoxication.

This test is a revolutionary technique to check in real time the mineral status of your body for an individual and efficient supplementation. In case of heavy metal intoxication, you can consider chelating techniques, supplements and/or lifestyle changes.

OligoScan offers a non-invasive, pain-free way to check for excess elements and heavy metals in your system.

The Method

The method used by the OligoScan to obtain results on the amount of trace elements in tissues is the spectrophotometry. 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 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.
