ARL - An Authority on the Science of Balancing Body
          Chemistry Through Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis!


                Proudly Serving the Health Care Professional for over Three Decades!

Analytical Research Labs
(ARL), is one of the most respected and experienced leaders in the hair tissue mineral analysis field. They have been setting the professional standards that have been emulated for over 30 years by national and international hair testing and interpretation laboratories. ARL, which pioneered the field of hair tissue mineral analysis interpretation, has earned the respect and endorsement of health care professionals throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe and Asia.

Not and Ordinary Hair Analysis!     ARL is State of the Art!!
Several factors combine to make ARL's hair tissue mineral analysis the best in the industry!

They are one of only two laboratories in the U.S. that do not wash the hair at the laboratory. Washing hair samples at the laboratory has been shown to erratically wash out the water-soluble elements. This creates much less accurate results. In a 2001 study in the Journal of the AMA (Seidel, S. et al., Assessment of Commercial Laboratories Performing Hair Mineral Analysis, JAMA, 285(1) Jan 3:67-72.) the two laboratories that did not wash the hair, of which they were one, showed superb reliability. 

ARL only uses ideal mineral levels not standard levels used by other labs which are unacceptable for building an optimized health and nutrition program. They work with precise mineral levels and ratios rather than with the broad ranges employed by the majority of professionals engaged in hair analysis. As a result, they identify even slight deviations from 'ideal' values responsible for some disorders which would escape detection by other labs. Their tests recognize biochemical individuality through determination of three basic oxidation types, thus providing a sound basis for an accurate and specific selection of nutrients based on the individual's metabolism. Detrimental health effects arising from mismatching of nutrients with individual metabolism are therefore avoided.

ARL uses technologically advanced testing instruments, including the Perkin Elmer Elan 9000 ICP Mass Spectrometer.

ARL is proud of their laboratory quality control procedures. These include known controls which are tested at the beginning, middle and end of every batch of hair samples to insure the accuracy of the results. They automatically retest any reading that is out of a normally expected range, provided sufficient hair is available for a second sample.

Test results are printed on an easy-to-read graph, unlike many of the other laboratories. This is a great benefit for both practitioners and their clients as well. The printed graph includes the mineral results, major mineral ratios and the oxidation type.

Analytical Research Labs offers the only complete individualized test interpretation by the method developed by the late Dr. Paul C. Eck, founder of ARL. This 15-20 page report is unique as it includes information related to your metabolic rate, energy levels, sugar and carbohydrate tolerance, immune system, autonomic balance, glandular activity and metabolic trends, a personal dietary supplement program, basic diet recommendations and other information that can be inferred from the test results.
