Heavy Metals Test – General Kit
Monitor your body and environment for HEAVY METALS contamination
Heavy Metals tested includes:
CADMIUM, COBALT, COPPER, LEAD, MANGANESE, MERCURY, NICKEL, ZINC
If you’re doing any kind of heavy metals chelation, it’s a good idea to do regular testing to monitor your excretion levels and load. This is an excellent test kit that would go along well with our Kelacream Chelation Cream.
The Heavy Metals Test – General (HMTG) kit was developed for Osumex as a simple to use at home test kit for a preliminary determination of the presence of an identified range of heavy metals.
These heavy metals consist of:
cadmium, cobalt, copper, lead, manganese, mercury, nickel, zinc
The HMTG kit utilizes chemical reagents to show the presence of heavy metals. The free metal ions of the heavy metals, if present, stimulate a color change to the reagents. Accordingly, the more metal ions are present, the stronger the resultant color change.
The chemicals used in the reagents are bio-degradable and do not further contaminate the environment, especially if disposed of properly after use. The reagents contain oils which pose no health risk to the user if contact is made. However, where contact is made to the eyes or inside the mouth the user is encouraged to consult his or her physician as soon as possible. It is recommended that the used solutions be flushed down the toilet as a good disposal guide.
The HMTG kit is suitable for testing any liquid medium such as saliva, urine, breast milk, tap water, etc., provided that the liquid is fairly clear preferably without suspended solids or sediments. Straining the liquid to be tested would be a good idea to achieve a clear color change and for an easier reading. Solids such as food, supplements, raw fish, etc. can be tested after it has been soaked in distilled water for 24 hours or treated. The juice from the fish can be tested for the presence of heavy metals ions.
The HMT General kit can be used to test for:
- mercury leaked from amalgam dental fillings – use saliva
- heavy metals in the body – use urine (however, it may not show mercury because the presence of any other metal that might “mask” it)
- mercury in fish – use juice from cooking a chunk of the fish in a microwave
- heavy metals in water such as tap, well, ground, etc
- mercury in breast milk
- heavy metals in environmental solids by liquidizing or soaking the item in distilled water for 24 hours, then filter, prior to testing
- heavy metals in herbs or medication by soaking the item in distilled water for 24 hours, then filter, prior to testing
“I purchased 4 of your “Heavy Metal Test General Kit” in U.K. which confirmed my doctors laboratory test that I have lead poison from lead water main to apt. Environmental Health Dept. tests on water recorded 1040 uj of lead where EEC safety limit was 15uj!
Clearly, your product works …..”

The result of the test comes in the form of a band or ring just below the surface of the combined solutions or in some cases the entire mixed solutions change color.
Very often where there is more than one metal present, “masking” of the result occurs. A grey color may result if the several metals are present at the same low concentration.
Below is the color strip to compare results obtained to:
Legend: Mn – Manganese; Ni – Nickel; Cu – Copper; Hg – Mercury; Cd – Cadmium; Co – Cobalt; Pb – Lead; Zn – Zinc;
A green color indicates no heavy metals present
A gray color indicates a combination of several heavy metals present at the same low concentration
A yellow green to olive green indicates the presence of manganese and or nickel
A yellow to beige color indicates the presence of copper
An orange color indicates the presence of mercury and this is usually seen only where no masking by other metals can occur such as in saliva and often breast milk.
A brownish orange to coral color indicates the presence of cadmium and or cobalt
A brownish pink or rust pink color indicates the presence of lead
A strong pink color indicates the presence of zinc
A strong color is indicative of the presence of the metal indicated to at least 5 ppm
The color results were validated by Kemetco Research Inc. based in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada – 2008
If there are no heavy metals present, the ring or band just below the surface of the test solution remains green like the image on the left
The HMTG kit is therefore an inexpensive preliminary determination of the presence of heavy metals in general so that steps may be taken for elimination from the body or object tested to prevent further contamination.
