The Quicksilver Scientific 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 the healthcare practitioner, 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 successful detoxification strategy for the patient.*
Quicksilver Scientific’s Mercury Tri-Test screens for a broad range of potentially toxic and nutrient metals to show elevated exposure to toxic metals or imbalances of nutrient metals in whole blood.
The Mercury Tri-Test requires a sample of blood, hair, and urine to perform mercury speciation analysis and assess both the body burden and ability to excrete each form of mercury.
Because imbalances of mineral pairs, especially copper-to-zinc ratios, can have a similar clinical presentation to heavy metal toxicity, and excess copper can have a synergistic effect with the heavy toxic metals, it is important to consider testing with the Blood Metals Panel in combination with the Mercury Tri-Test.
