Mercury Tri-Test™

Overview
Quicksilver Scientific’s CLIA-certified laboratory specializes in advanced mercury speciation testing, using the patented Mercury Tri-Test. This test utilizes samples of hair, blood, and urine to assess for the body’s mercury burden and its ability to eliminate it. This test helps practitioners and patients to understand the magnitude and source of mercury exposure, as well as if additional support is needed in the process of mercury detoxification.

Description

The Quicksilver Mercury Tri-Test is the only clinical test that utilizes mercury speciation analysis, a patented advanced technology that separates methyl mercury (MeHg) from inorganic mercury (HgII) and measures each directly. Quicksilver Scientific’s instruments are sensitive enough to measure ambient mercury levels in the body WITHOUT THE NEED FOR CHALLENGE TESTING. This laboratory test provides unprecedented information for healthcare practitioners, allowing them to assess the patient’s exposure sources, body burden and ability to excrete each form of mercury. This detailed information helps build an informed picture and allows the clinician to plan a rational approach to a successful detoxification strategy for the patient.

Our patented speciation testing technology provides analysis for inorganic and methyl mercury, allowing specific data targeting for better defined solutions. We also offer a complete detoxification program of wholesale supplements. Quicksilver Scientific's Mercury Tri-Test is the only clinical testing suite that utilizes blood, hair, and urine to measure excretion abilities and exposure to inorganic and methyl mercury.

Inorganic mercury (HgII) in the blood usually reflects a dental amalgam exposure, and urine is a route of excretion for it. Some is generated from the breakdown of methylmercury inside the body. Inorganic mercury is the most cytotoxic form of mercury and, therefore, an important pool to track. The urine:blood ratio gives an index of excretion efficiency for inorganic mercury.

Methylmercury (MeHg) mostly reflects seafood consumption, though some MeHg does form in the gut from swallowed amalgam-based mercury. Excretion of methylmercury is reflected in the hair. The hair:blood ratio gives an index of excretion efficiency of methylmercury.
