OligoScan / IWG Style /

The Oligoscan uses spectrophotometry in the tissue of the hand to make a quick and precise analysis of the trace elements and heavy metals in the patient. The method used by OligoScan 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 Purpose

The OligoScan technology allows you to make a quick and precise analysis of the trace elements and heavy metals in the tissues of the body.  

The Science

The OligoScan technology utilizes spectrophotometry to obtain results on the amount of trace elements and heavy metals exist within tissue, calibrated specifically for a specific area of the body.  This is a quantitative analytical methodology, which consists in measuring the absorbance level or the optical density of a specific chemical or mineral substance. 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 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.

The Use at IWG

The oligo scan is used in many programs to decipher heavy metal toxicity and mineral insufficiency.  This is essential in the recovery of the patient.
