In our quest to find the best and latest tools to help our patients, we are excited to be one of the first clinics in the United States to offer the OligoScan, an in-office spectrophotometer to determine intracellular levels of essential minerals, trace elements, toxic heavy metals, and oxidative stress and protection.
Developed in France, after decades of research, the OligoScan is a sophisticated test that is simple to administer. After getting specific essential information, such as height, weight, age, and blood type, readings are taken using the spectrophotometer device at four different locations on the person’s non-dominant hand. Your data is uploaded to the OligoScan servers where it is analyzed against a vast database. You and your doctor can immediately see the results. With this information about your current state of health better treatment decisions can be made.
Spectrophotometry 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 specific wavelength range.
Spectrophotometry is used in many areas: chemistry, pharmaceuticals, environment, food, biology, medical/clinical, industrial and others. In the medical field, spectrophotometry is used to examine blood or tissue.
