Frequently Asked Questions

An Online Method

How can I realize my tests so quickly ?

OligoScan is a technological revolution made possible by the recent progress of mobile phone, automobile and many other industries, which allow miniaturizing of devices which has been very voluminous a few years ago.

So you have your own test device in your office!

Finished is the long waiting time to get results: you can make a test for minerals and get in real time the evolution of trace elements and heavy metals of your patient.

What is the difference between this and the other technologies?

OligoScan has been conceived to make a precise test of the bioavailability of minerals, trace elements and heavy metals in the body’s living tissues.

The measure is made on the skin of the palm or on the drop of venous blood taken directly from the extremity of a finger. This allows to see what is happening directly in tissues and not in the bodies fluids which are thus much more unstable and less reliable.

Indeed, the test on the urine allows to see what the body excretes. Hair show what occurred in the body, a few weeks ago, even a few months ago mixed up to external factors. The blood shows what circulates.

The OligoScan test allows to observe what happens in the muscle or in the venous blood, extracted from muscular tissue, therefore giving an estimate of the intra-tissular BIOAVAILABILITY.

What is the economic model of OligoScan ?

OligoScan responds simultaneously to a need of rapidity, precision of the results and economic interest. Instead of paying an very expensive device, or pay the bank, OligoScan allows to the practitioner to earn money very quickly.

Indeed, the device is sold to the practitioner at a very low price and some registration fees. Once the system is installed and the service is activated, the practitioner can make as many tests he wishes to do, without any minimum. He is only charged on the tests made with OligoScan.

The practitioner charges his fees plus the amount he think reasonable for the attention and time he spent with the patient. So this allows to get an additional income to the usual consultations.

How to see the numbers of tests made?
Your “practitioner interface» shows the detail of all the tests done.

Scientific Aspects

How does this device work ?

The method used by OligosScan to obtain the results on the amount of trace elements and minerals, in the tissues is spectrophotometry. It is a quantitative analytical method which consists of measuring the absorbance or the optical density of a chemical substance.

The basic principle is that every chemical compound absorbs, emits or reflects the light (electromagnetic radiation) on a certain 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 the following domains: chemistry, pharmacy, environment, food-processing industry, biology, medical /clinical, industrial and many others.

In the clinical applications, the spectrophotometry is used to examine the blood or the tissues for clinical investigation.

Is OligoScan cinically validated ?

OligoScan has been validated by our scientific team through an important series of comparative tests compared to the clinical symptoms presented by the patients.

Relevant correlations with blood tests have been observed.
