What can HTMA tell you:


Standard Information:

All hair analysis laboratories should be able to tell you the following information:

  • Exposure to and accumulation of Toxic Elements

  • Nutritional mineral deficiency or excess

  • Nutritional balance or imbalances

  • Toxic/Nutrient ratios

Quality Process Control Matters:

Although all hair analysis laboratories can provide the above information, not all laboratories can provide an accurate analysis. This is especially true for laboratories that do not have an elaborate quality control for their analysis process. For example:

  • Mercury is highly volatile. Mercury vapor can escape during the digestion process, giving rise to inaccurate readings.

  • The cleaning process to prepare the hair for analysis can remove essential information from the hair sample.

Generally, laboratories that provide analysis at a low price then to compromise on quality control, leading to inaccurate and inconsistent results


The type of equipment used for the analysis also determines the price of hair analysis. Laboratories that use the latest and most advanced equipment for consistency and accuracy will charge more for an analysis.
