Hair Sample Testing

What is Bioresonance Hair testing?

Bioresonance therapy is a complimentary medicine using a device that captures and diagnoses electromagnetic signals coming from the body. Developed in the 1970’s by a team of medical doctors and bio-physicists, these devices are in regular use in over 26 different countries.

Is there anything additional to pay?

If you’ve purchased one of our hair testing kits, you will have to pay the cost of the postage back to the processing centre here in the UK. If you’ve purchased a blood intolerance test, you will receive a free post return envelope in the kit which is sent to you. We try to keep our costs as low as possible (by not sending out physical hair testing kits) so that we are able to offer such a comprehensive and accurate test at the price offered. Please ensure the correct postage amount has been paid as we are not liable for any extra charges.

How much should postage cost? (hair samples)

When you send your samples to us, please remember to attach the correct postage amount to your envelope or outer wrap. If you do not attach the correct postage, the samples may not reach our testing lab. Therefore, you may need to resend your samples to us again using the correct postage amount. For more information please visit our International Service page.

How do I take a hair sample?

The safest way to take a hair sample is to ask someone else to help you. First brush your hair upwards to reveal the root area at the back of the head, then holding a small amount of hair between the finger and thumb, cut the hair as close to the scalp as possible (without drawing blood). If you do not have anyone to help you, using a mirror may help ensure you avoid injury.

How much hair do I have to provide?

Only a small amount – 5 individual strands of hair. We do not require large clumps of hair.

My hair is very short, can I still complete the tests?

The hair sample does not have to be from the head; we can test hair from any part of the body including leg, arm or chest.

My hair is dyed, will this affect the result?

No, the test is completed on the composition of the hair sample so hair colouring will have no effect on the result.

Will medication affect my test results in anyway?

Unfortunately as there is a large variety in medication it may affect your samples. We would recommend you seek advice from your doctor, or a member of our dedicated Customer Services team who are available on LiveChat 24 hours a day, Monday-Friday.

Can you test for coeliac disease?

We do not test for coeliac disease, however we can test for a gluten intolerance. If you suspect you may have coeliac disease we strongly recommend you seek advice from your GP.

Can I find out if I have coeliac disease with one of your tests?

A reaction to gluten or wheat in our tests does NOT show the presence of coeliac disease. In order to test for coeliac disease you should speak to your GP. The blood testing usually carried out is total IgA and IgA tissue transglutaminase antibody (tTG).

What machinery will test my hair sample?

We use MARS III Quantum Response Systems, produced by Bruce Copen Laboratories.

What accreditation does your equipment have?

Bruce Copen Laboratories follow a quality management system in accordance with EN ISO 13485: 2003 + AC: 2007 and are certified as a manufacturer of medical products. The MARS III is approved as a medical device class IIa in accordance with Directive 93/42/EEC.

My results don't show any intolerances or allergies yet I have uncomfortable symptoms, how can these results be correct?

In the unlikely occurrence of zero results on your allergy and intolerance test, we would recommend speaking visiting your GP to help you understand your symptoms and their root cause.

Blood Sample Testing

How do I take my blood sample?

Your sample instructions are found with your kit. However, click here to read instruction to help you with your blood spot testing.

How long should I leave my blood sample to dry for?

To ensure your results are accurate, your blood sample needs to be completely dry before packaging. If stored in a cool, dry place, it will be ready to be folded after approximately 5 hours. We do not recommend speeding the drying process through any other means.

Does it hurt to take a blood test?

We provide you with two lancets, which are designed to give you a very small prick to start the blood flow. It’s exactly the same as a pin prick and if administered correctly, will not hurt.

What should I do if my blood clots too quickly?

We recommend you prick your middle or index finger after a brief walk, and following running your hand under a hot tap. If the blood still clots, you can start to massage your finger from your palm of your hand downwards to stimulate more blood onto the card.

What happens if I don't fill all five spots?

Click on the LiveChat button on our website (open Monday to Friday, 24 hours a day) and we will arrange for new lancets and a new card to be sent immediately. This will cause a delay in your testing process so we recommend following the instructions carefully the first time you test.

Can I complete a blood or hair test on my child?

Whilst we do allow children from the age of 2 and above to be tested there is evidence that allergies are not fully developed until the age of 7. Please check with a medical professional before purchasing.

Can you complete the test on animals?

Unfortunately, we cannot carry out our blood or hair tests on animals.

Can you take the blood test if you have a blood born disease like HIV or hepatitis?

Unfortunately we cannot accept blood samples that have any viruses.

Can the blood or hair test be carried out if you're pregnant?

You can do still complete a hair test, however for accuracy, we would not recommend a blood test as the results may be varied due to the natural changes your body will be going through. For complete accuracy, we would suggest waiting until after child birth.
