Mineralogram test of hair

Dear friends!

    In this section we tried to elaborate on all major  moments, concerning the essence and principles of  the innovative method for monitoring  the state of the human body with reference to the mineralogical map base on the data on 35 chemical elements, i.e. the method  of spectral analysis of hair and other biological samples.

If you want to get the most detailed information on this matter, please, visit the section of "Frequently Asked Questions".  We have listed all the exact facts and details there especially for your attention.


The History of the Method:

    The demand  for this method of express testing was conditioned by the pending necessity for the  on-the-spot examination required for emergency workers, since their physical health is put under constant risk by stressful and destructive environment they have to work in.

This method had to be elaborated mainly due to the fact that there was no method existing at that time capable of ensuring required health research.

    It was in 2007, when the elemental analysis laboratory of was launched in All-Russian Center for Emergency and Radiation Medicine of A.M. Nikiforov in St. Petersburg. The main mission of this instruction was aimed at analising the chemical composition of hair, nails, blood and other research samples with coupled plasma mass spectrometry. Over the past years a great experimental data bank was collected through the studies of several hundreds of thousands of patients. This method has completely proved its uniqueness and it can be safely regarded the technology of the 21st century! Formerly, the elemental analysis laboratory used to provide its services only to employees of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, and it was not long ago when it became possible for civilians to do the  test  within the state healthcare monitoring  program  aimed at monitoring the content of toxic chemical elements in the bodies of  Russian residents. The research was conducted by the Clinic of the Ministry of Emergency Situations  based in All-Russian Center for Emergency and Radiation Medicine of A.M. Nikiforov. The elemental analysis laboratory of All-Russian Center for Emergency and Radiation Medicine of A.M. Nikiforov located in St. Petersburg is the only institution in Russia which has state approval for such research. No other companies, clinics, etc. has the license or is able to provide the adequate service in such area and since they have no state accreditation the data obtained by them has no legal value.

    Our company participates in the state research program. We will be happy to help you go through all stages of the test, explain the obtained results and, if it is required, make a detoxification program aimed at excreting noxious toxic elements from the body and helping to replete the vital ones.


The Uniqueness of the Spectral Analysis (mineralogram test):

    Leave scientific terms and comparing of various health parameter estimators aside, spectral analysis is the only non-invasive method (i.e. non-requiring blood sampling or other interventions) capable of covering the widest range of measured values in one test.

It is important to note that before this method was introduced, a number of toxic elements was impossible to detect or such detection required extremely complex analyzes inaccessible for civilians.

The bioelemental status estimated as a result of the test reflects the body state based on the data on 35 chemical elements present in the human body.

Thank to vast experience and statistical data accumulated by the labaratory, the experimental parameters provide highly-accurate information on conditions of various systems of the human vital activity, and what is even more important, to detect the presence of pathogenically noxious toxic elements and the lack of essential ones required for the life worth living.


Recommendations for Doing the Test:

    To put it in a nutshell it is essential for all people who care about quality of their lives to monitor the condition of their bodies and improve its parameters.

People falling into the following categories are at the biggest risk of deviations,:

- Hostile residential environment (city dwellers, industrial workers, etc.);

- Forming of the body during the childhood growth and adolescence;

- Frequent stress and oppressive residential environment;

- Pregnancy and puerperium of breastfeeding and recovery;

-The problem of malnutrition;

- Tendency to disfunction of the endocrine system;

- Frequent medication and long on-treatment periods;

- Strenuous exercising, etc.


The Spectral Analysis of hair Will Make it Possible to:

    To get the valuable insights of the following issues:

- A picture of mineral metabolisms of 35 chemical elements along with detection of the presence of noxious toxic elements and the lack of the vital ones;

- Finding the reasons for deterioration of the skin, hair, nails, etc .;

- Detecting the hidden preconditions for chronic diseases;

- The overall picture of your lifestyle, nutrition, stress resistance and the impact your working environment has on your health;

- The indication of the operating quality of the organs (liver, kidneys, intestines, skin, urinary system, etc.) responsible for the detoxification of the body  and excretion of noxious substances from the body.

What Kinds of Documents Does a  Patient Get after Doing the Test:


After doing the test, you will receive the following documents:

1) The conclusion with the data on 35 chemical elements present in the body officially issued, sealed and the signed by the head of the elemental analysis laboratory of the Clinic of the Ministry of Emergency Situations.

2) Conclusion on vital bioelements and a program of their replenishment.

3) Conclusion on toxic bioelements

4) add

    Why this Test is Worth Doing. What Do I Need the Obtained Data for:

We provided the most detailed information on this issue in the "Frequently Asked Questions" section. Please, check "The questions on the hair spectral analysis", question №1.

It will be very helpful if you spare a while for studying this information in order to find out about  the essence of our services.


On The Test Methodology:

    Description of the method of inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry, also referred to as the spectral analysis is quite complex and too high-tech.

The key factor  here is that it brilliantly copes with the task and it is a universal tool for highly- accurate analysis of a wide variety of samples.

We are Happy to Present a Brief Description of the Method:

1) Giving the general description, avoiding scientific term.

1.1) The test sample, in this case we are talking of hair, gets dissolved in a highly concentrated solution of nitric or hydrochloric acid turning into the solution.

1.2) Then the solution, tested with inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry, goes through a series of required stages which turn the biological sample into atoms.

It is amazing but in the result hair gets decomposed into the smallest possible particles!

After atoms get ionized, they are analyzed in the ionic optics system of the analyzer.

1.3) Finally after the samples pass through all the stages and transformations we get the data on 35 chemical elements detected in the sample in μg / g.

1.4) Why have we chosen exactly 35 elements as the number of elements basic for our studies?

    Currently there are 35 elements of the periodic table which have been thoroughly studied in medicine over a long time. The accumulated data on the effect they have on the human health is sufficient for determining the exact condition the human body.  It is these 35 elements that are studied with spectral analysis in the innovative laboratory of All-Russian Center for Emergency and Radiation Medicine of A.M. Nikiforov.

We would like to thank you for your kind attention!
