Human, Animal & Environmental
Toxic Chemical Exposure Testing & Result Visualisation

Toxtest works with the Environmental Analysis Laboratory (EAL) in Lismore, NSW to provide extensive Toxic Chemical Testing. Results are then visualised and put in context to your health & any environmental contamination according to multiple safety based guidelines.

No stone is left unturned. Our Home, Garden, Farm, Workplace, School and Recreation Area can be tested for nasty chemical build-up. We look at Air, Water, Soil, Compost, Dust and Human & Animal Hair.

Data Speaks

Cumulative and combined exposures to toxic chemicals are known to adversely affect our health.

EAL uses state-of-the-art equipment and highly skilled technicians. Toxtest uses data visualisation techniques not used before.

Together we make sure your results are accurate, unambiguous & loud.

With the growing public awareness of the dangers of toxic chemical exposures, Toxtest & EAL has recently begun offering testing packages to the general public that are relevant for today, low cost and provide innovative visualisation of the results.

"Visualization is critical to understanding the data. While tables are necessary to record the data, it is usually very difficult to distinguish pattern in tables of numbers, particularly for large data sets. Graphs and pictorial representations, however, allow the reader to see complex data sets simply and concisely. Plots can reveal hidden structure in the data, and outlying or unusual results, and they enable preconceived ideas to be challenged." This is from the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) in Australia | National Water Quality Management Strategy, Australian Drinking Water Guidelines 6, 2011, Version 3.1 Updated March 2015.

To this end EAL has recently began working with Toxtest to provide full online visualisation of client results.
Full confidentiality and security
is maintained as no personal information is presented or stored online.

Affordable, important for health and relevant test packages.
These packages include visualisation features and include Heavy Metal Analysisof Human Hair, Water, Soil and Compost and Basic Water Quality and Cyanobacteria/Algae investigations. More are on the way. Download order forms below.

Using colour, guidelines, movement and scale, the data will speak for itself.

The Bottom Line
The main purpose of these tests is to reveal possible contamination or elevated levels of harmful toxic metals within water, hair, soil, dust or compost.
More than half of these metals are known to be toxic, dangerous, carcinogenic or have unknown effects on humans. Long red bars make it imperative to investigate possible contamination routes and investigate further.
Bar lengths are shown as a percentage of the maximum allowed guideline level of the particular metal. Blue bars indicate the result is under the max allowed level -i.e. under 100%


Why test for toxic substances in our body and our environment?
by Toxno and Toxtest founder - Hartmut Günther

Evidence is mounting and scientists are beginning to acknowledge concern that we know very little about the overall accumulative and synergist effect on human health of low level exposure to toxic chemicals.

It is necessary to test so that we can know. Knowing provides impetus for change. At this timely snapshot point in our humanity (2015) "revaluate, rethink, regroup, question, look deeper and "mad as hell" are tools that may be useful. Please, make no mistake, a tsunami of toxic man made substances is currently pouring and accumulating into our world, our local environment and as a result - our bodies.

Patients teach health practitioners. This as definitely been my experience. Several years ago a client presented with a young child who had antimony levels off the scale (from a Hair Mineral Analysis test and confirmed with subsequent urine and blood tests). The child had many serious health issues. We spoke for some time to conclude that the exposure route was the carpet that the family had been walking on (with shoes on) for many years and that the children live, eat and play on .

The father had been working at an Antimony mine for quite some time. Long term exposure to Antimony causes serious health complications. The mother, the father and myself had no idea this transference to the child was possible.

Recently a patient presented who was an amateur shooting competitor. She often frequented the local shooting range to practice. Routinely we checked her lead levels via a Hair mineral Analysis. Lead is used in bullets. She was 10 times above the baseline for lead and her antimony, zinc and copper were also high. Interestingly the literature on contamination at shooting ranges showed that lead, antimony, zinc and copper are the primary contaminants, mostly a result of their inclusion in bullet composition. Subsequent blood and urine tests also showed elevated levels of lead.

Screening for toxic chemicals is particularly important for children and expectant mothers. Current research shows that mothers breast milk is increasingly contaminated with toxic chemicals. Children are very sensitive to even the smallest amount of toxin. Symptoms entail that resemble ADHD, autism, allergy, hyperactivity and even physical deformities.

Testing soil and water is paramount as it highlights routes of exposure to toxic chemicals that all of us are susceptible to. In April 2015, after more than a decade of denial, it was finally revealed that Glyphosate (active ingredient in Roundup) is carcinogenic to humans. (REF: Carcinogenicity of tetrachlorvinphos, parathion, malathion, diazinon, and glyphosate, IARC Classification, )

Young people are just learning about the world they live in. Just recently I spoke with a young man who had worked at a lead mine for 6 months. Currently he was weighing out Arsenic in a lab at the local university without much protection. Even as a science graduate he had no idea.

Laboratory Tests

Toxtest and the Environmental Analysis Laboratory (EAL) at the Southern Cross University in Australia, are working together to bring innovation to the area of publicly accessible, affordable, relatable and actionable toxicology testing and visualisation. We also focus on raising awareness and education of the potential exposures to toxic chemicals and the resultant consequences of these contaminations.

See our key articles here explaining some of the tests and an expanding list of visualised results - List of Hair, Water, Soil and Dust analyses of Heavy Metals, Metalloids and Minerals

We are starting this innovation in raising awareness with human testing using a non intrusive hair sample. This test is low cost and is a screening assessment looking at chronic low level exposure to HEAVY METALS. Great for revealing chronic lead, arsenic, cadmium, antimony, chromium, nickel, zinc, copper and mercury exposures.

Daily, mounting, peer reviewed evidence is showing that long term exposure to nasty substances can contribute to chronic health problems. In the first trimester of pregnancy, children are especially vulnerable to ANY toxic substances. Many cross the placenta. Workplace eduction of potential long term health dangers to toxic substances used and exposed to, on the job, is sometimes inadequate or completely non existent. Government due diligence to protect citizens by exercising a precautionary principle is often absent.

Take it upon yourself to stay aware and informed.
