Developed in France after decades of research, the Oligoscan is a sophisticated test that is simple to administer.
After collecting specific essential information including height, weight, age, and blood type, readings are taken using a spectrophotometer device at four different locations from the person’s non-dominant hand. The collected data is then transmitted to the Oligoscan servers, where it is analyzed against a vast database. You and your doctor can then immediately view the results.

OligoScan is a portable spectrophotometer, which is the European technology for trace elements and heavy metals measurement at the cell-based level. The accumulated substances on patient tissues are fast analyzed by OligoScan. The OligoScan data are well correlates with conventional Blood or Urine tests. The accumulation of heavy metals in cell can lead healthy cell to damage, aging, senescence, death and mutations. For this reason, it leads to various disease (i.e. Alzheimer disease, Cardiovascular disease, Cancer and etc.)
The Oligoscan utilizes spectrophotometry to measure trace elements and heavy metals existing within tissue, calibrated specifically for a specific area of the body.
Spectrophotometry is a quantitative analytical methodology, which consists of measuring the absorption level or the optical density of a specific chemical or mineral substance.
The Power of Light
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 Beer-Lambert’s law.
Spectrophotometry technology itself is not new and is used across several domains including, chemistry, pharmacy, environment, food-processing, biology, medical/clinical industries, material/chemical engineering, clinical applications, and many others. NASA uses spectrophotometry to understand the contents of distant stars and planets.
In the clinical applications, spectrophotometry is used to examine blood or tissues for clinical diagnosis.
What’s unique about the Oligoscan is that the technology & program has been specifically adapted to be used on people.
Comparison to traditional testing
Blood tests measure circulating levels of minerals and metals, while urine and hair tests measure what the body is excreting. The Oligoscan is unique in that it measures the levels of minerals and metals inside your cells, specifically in the peripheral tissue of one’s hand, 4mm in depth.
For example, a urine test for heavy metals showed high levels of lead and mercury. A chelating agent, which binds to heavy metals was used. Different chelating agents are more selective for specific metals. In this case, the test results showered higher lead in the urine because of the chelating agent used. The Oligoscan showed both of these metals high in the tissues with mercury levels more elevated than levels of lead. The Oligoscan provides a more accurate picture of what was occurring in the tissues, indicating that the mercury was more of a problem than the lead levels.
Another example is seen in someone with high calcium in their hair analysis. On the Oligoscan, the same patient may show a deficiency of intracellular calcium as they are not utilizing their calcium.
