Quicksilver Scientific’s CLIA-certified laboratory specializes in advanced mercury speciation analysis using the Mercury Tri-Test. This test utilizes patented advanced technology that separates methyl mercury from inorganic mercury and measures each independently. Samples of blood, urine, and hair are taken to help practitioners and patients understand the magnitude and source of mercury exposure, as well as the body’s ability to eliminate it.
BLOOD METALS PANEL
Using state-of-the-art inductively coupled plasma/mass spectroscopy, the Blood Metals Panel screens a total of 16 elements to show elevated exposure or imbalances in whole blood. This test includes testing of the nutrient elements calcium, copper, lithium, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, selenium, and zinc; and the toxic and potentially toxic metals antimony, arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury, cobalt, silver, and strontium.
Blood Spot Metals Test
Quicksilver’s at-home Blood Spot Metals Test is an easy and safe way to determine and monitor metal levels and imbalances in the body. This test is patient and consumer friendly, with no requirement for a lab visit or blood draw. A simple finger prick helps assess blood levels of the nutrient metals selenium, copper, and zinc, as well as copper to zinc ratios. It also screens for the toxic metals antimony, arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury.
