Heavy Metal Screen Test – Professional Kit
The Professional Heavy Metal Screening Test (and the Heavy Metal Screen Test (duo kit)) is based on the application of the classical heavy metal reagent dithizone in a chemical procedure for the detection of heavy metals in aqueous liquids. This procedure has been proven and tested for decades and is frequently applied in analytical- chemical laboratories.
The test paper contains dithizone. Upon agitation of the test solution, the metal ions in the sample bind to the dithizone at adequate acidity levels (pH-value of 7.0). Dithizone and metals form complexes of specific colors depending on the nature of the metals (elements). Color intensity augments with higher quantities of metal ions.
At the presence of several metals in the urine, a combination of colors may occur (grey coloration, – mostly with first samples). The color of the zinc complexes mixes with the respective colors of copper, lead and mercury. The predominant metal in the sample may be visually clearly recognized, however. The test should be used exclusively as a ‘’screening test’’ in order to determine the presence of heavy metals.
The classical Heavy Metal Screening Test has been verified and unequivocally approved with regard to method and reliability, through independent laboratories by Prof. Dr. Georg Schwedt, Institute for Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry at the Technical University of Clausthal, as well as by Prof. Dr. med. Lucius Maiwald at Gerbrunn and by Dr. Leman at the Institute for Toxicology and Medicinal Laboratory Diagnostics. For more information, see our references and testimonials section.
