Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) is a test that measures the mineral content of hair. Hair is desired for sampling and testing because it is easy to handle and procure. There is no need for special handling procedures or special equipment to get hair. In addition to the ease of procurement, they can give an indication of toxic metal accumulation, long term and acute.

Testing for minerals in the hair can reveal important information about the metabolic processes. The process for HTMA is relatively simple. First, the hair sample is collected within the inch and a half to the scalp. Testing is then performed using a series of chemical and high temperature procedures.

The resulting legal fees and compensation would be covered under professional liability insurance. Having a reliable insurance policy is paramount, get insured today.
