Toxic Metal Profile in Blood and Urine



Heavy metals and some toxic elements such as Lead (Pb), Mercury (Hg), Cadmium (Cd), Manganese (Mn), Chromium (Cr), Cobalt (Co), Nickel (Ni), Arsenic (As) and Aluminium (Al) are dangerous substances, since they can cause some diseases or negative impacts on our health. Nowadays, metal exposure can be occurred by several sources, especially contaminated food and drink as well as occupation. To assess the health risk, toxic metal profiling in blood or urine should be performed and be evaluated and recommended by a doctor or health specialist. 

N Health provides the quantitative measurement of toxic metal profile in blood and urine by using Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) which is the most reliable analytical method for metal determination including high accuracy, precision, specificity and sensitivity. Moreover, “Graphic Report and Basic Interpretation” will be delivered in order to understand the test results easily.




This operation schedule is for the test performed at N Health head quarter, Bangkok.
The above turnaround time does not include logistic time. For BDMS network hospitals, please contact N Health laboratory located at your hospitals.
