Oligo Scan Check

What is Oligo scan:

Oligo scan is an instant measurement of vitamins, minerals, trace elements, heavy metals, and oxidative stress. It's applicable for ages 2 onwards. It uses an optical technology called spectrophotometry that measures the absorption or the optical density of a chemical in the tissue/ cells of the body.

Minerals may it be macro or micro nutrients have a key role in the proper functioning of the body. A deficiency in trace elements and minerals are one of the major factors for poor performance, tiredness, vulnerability to stress, decreased concentration or intellectual capacity, etc. So it's very important to control the mineral levels in the body to be able to anticipate associated risks.

On the other hand, dangers in massive exposure to toxic agents transmitted by air pollution, ground water and soil, food etc. contamination is becoming increasingly dangerous to our health. Toxic metals cause oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is a type of aggression of the cell components by free radicals. Oxidative stress is responsible for early aging and many other diseases. Free radicals are molecules produced in small amounts by the body that can damage the components of the c ells like enzyme protein, lipid membrane, DNA, etc. Their production is stimulated by exposure to UV, tobacco, pollution and pesticides or by the toxic heavy metals. All of these can be detected by the Oligo Scan.

    • Height
    • Weight
  • The dietitian will take the measurement using the oligo scan device on the hand epidermis using spectrophotometry.
  • The oligo scan application processes and analyses data.
  • The record with the results appear on the computer.
  • A detailed medical result will also be generated that shows detection of trace elements and mineral deficiencies and excesses as well as high toxic heavy metals in the body.

Appointment contact details:

The appointments can be made through the RHWC Dietitian Clinic from Saturday to Thursday from 10 am to 3:30 Pm. Since oligo scan is portable we can do onsite assessment/ scan for 15 people/ day with 30 minute interval every patient following the rules and regulations of MOH Bahrain.
