A simple and quick measurement in 3 steps :


Fill out the patient information


Take measurements using the device on hand epidermis


The record with the results appears on your computer

The record provided allows for detection of trace elements and minerals deficiencies as well as high rate of toxic metals in the body.
Oligoscan is now used by health professionals in many countries as a solution whenever a quick and accurate analysis of the level of trace elements, minerals and toxic metals is needed.


The Oligoscan uses optical technology : spectrophotometry.

oligoscan optical


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.


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.

  • 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 your computer / tablet

Your health

Minerals and anti-oxidants are necessary for the proper functioning of the body. Accumulation of toxic metals can lead to health risks.

  • Minerals
  • A primary contribution

Minerals (macronutrients and micronutrients) have a key role in the proper functioning of the body. A daily intake of nutritional supplements is essential since the human body is unable to synthesize them itself.

Therefore, a deficiency in trace elements and minerals is one of the major factor for poor performance, tiredness, vulnerability to stress, decreased concentration or intellectual capacity, etc. It is, therefore, important to control the mineral level in the body to be able to anticipate the associated risks.

  • Toxic metals
  • A new public health issue

Studies by the WHO or FAO have highlighted the increasing dangers of massive exposure to toxic agents. Transmitted by air pollution, ground water and soil, food, etc. contamination is becoming increasingly dangerous and unavoidable involving health risks.

Toxic metals cause oxidative stress.

  • Oxidative stress
  • To apprehend for better ageing

Oxidative stress is a type of aggression of the cell components by free radicals.

Oxidative stress is responsible for aging and many other diseases.

Free radicals

Free radicals are molecules produced in small amounts by the body. These free radicals are very reactive substances, capable of damaging the components of the cells (enzyme proteins, lipid membranes, DNA). Their production is particularly stimulated by the exposure to sunlight (UV), tobacco, pollution, pesticides, etc.

A diet rich in antioxidants, particularly found in some fruits and vegetables, is essential in fighting free radicals.

An online method

OligoScan 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 patient gets his test results in “real time” for an affordable price, with the possibility of immediate interpretation. The evolution of results can be monitored over time.

The technology

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.
Both measures provide understanding of different dimensions and information on minerals and metabolism. They are complementary in that sense and should be part of a patient's overall understanding.
There are certain requirements to meet for tests on children : Minimum age : 15 years Minimum Weight : 30 kg Minimum Height : 100 cm.
