How are these minerals and trace elements tested?
It is tested by using technology provided by OligoScan. The Oligoscan uses optical technology called spectrophotometry.
The OligoScan is a reliable and scientifically proven tool.
A set of tests and comparative studies have been made by researchers highlighting a correlation between the results of the OligoScan and those performed in the laboratory.
This is a medical device with a medical CE marking under European Directive 93/42 / EEC. This directive outlines the requirements for security and performance, as well as marketing terms that are binding on manufacturers.
• Patient’s physiological data is entered
• Patient dermis is scanned by spectrometry
• OligoScan application processes and analyses data
• Data is sent and stored on a secure server, allowing for further monitoring
• Results are available on the computer / tablet
It is designed for precise evaluation of bioavailability of minerals, trace elements and the rate of toxic metals in living tissues. The measurement is made on the surface of the hand. The advantage of epidermis analysis as opposed to a secretion one is that it gives more stable picture. Indeed, the test of the urine can show what that the body excretes. The hair provides information about what happened in the body a few weeks or months ago. The blood shows what circulates. The OligoScan balance sheet allows us to observe what is in the tissue and therefore to assess intra-tissular BIO-AVAILABILITY. But all these measurements are complementary.
The OligoScan device has been validated by our scientific team with an important series of comparative tests in regard to clinical symptoms among the patients. In addition, there were relevant correlations with other measurement methods observed.
This is a quantitative analytical method of measuring the absorption or the optical density of a chemical. It is based on the principle of absorption, transmission or reflection of light by the chemical compounds over a certain wavelength range. Spectrophotometry is used in many areas: chemicals, pharmaceuticals, environment, food, biology, medical / clinical, industrial and others. In the medical field, spectrophotometry is used to examine blood or tissue.
