Welcome to Quicksilver Scientific
Quicksilver Scientific is a CLIA certified laboratory offering mercury speciation and blood metal testing for human health. We use state-of-the-art testing technology, including patented mercury speciation technology, to give the most accurate and reliable metal testing available today.
The QS Mercury Tri-Test
Our patented speciation testing technology provides analysis for both inorganic and methyl mercury, allowing specific data targeting for better defined solutions. Quicksilver Scientific’s Mercury Tri-Test is the only clinical testing suite that utilizes blood, hair, and urine to measure both exposures and excretion abilities.
Inorganic mercury (HgII) in 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. This is the most cytotoxic form of mercury so an important pool to track. The urine:blood ratio gives an index of excretion efficiency for inorganic mercury.
Methylmercury (MeHg) reflects seafood consumption, though some is made 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.
The QS Blood Metals Panel
Quicksilver Scientific’s Blood Metals Panel screens a broad range of nutrient and toxic metals to show elevated exposures to toxic metals or imbalances of nutrient metals in whole blood.
Nutrient Elements: Calcium, Chromium, Copper, Lithium, Magnesium, Manganese, Molybdenum, Selenium, Zinc
Potentially Toxic Elements: Arsenic, Cadmium, Cobalt, Lead, Mercury, Silver, Strontium
