Mercury Tri-Test FAQ

How does it work?

The Mercury Tri-Test uses mercury speciation analysis to measure methyl mercury and inorganic mercury separately and determine the ambient mercury level in your body. Challenge testing is not needed.

What is tested?

The Mercury Tri-Test uses samples of your blood, hair, and urine to determine the levels of mercury in your body and your mercury excretion ability.

How is it different from challenge testing?

Challenge tests, or “provocation tests,” have been used for many years to diagnose mercury toxicities. These urine tests are designed to determine how much mercury you have been exposed to and is stored in your system. However, challenge testing is not well-regulated, does not reflect how much long-term exposure someone has had, does not show how well a patient can eliminate the toxins and can result in several issues in interpretation. The Mercury Tri-Test is designed to overcome these issues by testing multiple sources—blood, hair, and urine—as well as the relative levels of both methylmercury and inorganic mercury in the body.
