MITOCHONDRIA :  Exploration of Intracellular Space©



  1.  Research has shown that sublingual epithelial cells correlate well with deep body tissues
  such as heart tissue taken during bypass surgery and skeletal muscle biopsies...taken from
  NASA volunteers. The 15 minute lecture series provides extensive information.

  2.  Epithelial cell ASEM analysis correlates with current total body tissue mineral electrolyte status.

  • EXA Test® is a high-tech, high complexity analytical scanning electron microscopy method,
    (ASEM,) with  computerized elemental X-ray analysis (EXA) or energy dispersive x-ray analysis

  3.  Buccal cells have a high cytoplasm to nucleus structure facilitating mineral electrolyte

  4.  Epithelial cells offer a rapidly renewing, homogeneous cell population which reflects very
  fast tissue changes and allows the physician to follow the patient's current metabolic physical

  5. Buccal epithelial cells are easily accessible providing a non invasive specimen for use on
  specially prepared slides.


  • Blood and urine levels of minerals and ions DO NOT necessarily reflect an accurate
    current status of essential ions.
    Clinical practice and
    Peer Reviewed Published studies
    of the buccal cell smear, as developed by IntraCellular Diagnostics,  indicate high
    between altered  mineral levels and pathophysiological conditions in the following body systems:


  • Functions of the organelles, membranes and the cardiac muscle relate to intracellular changes which could contribute to coronary artery disease, arrhythmias, and plaque deposition.

  ICD's  EXA Test ® Is:

  1.   A proven procedure using rapidly metabolizing sublingual (buccal) epithelial cells of the
  oral cavity to reflect very fast tissue changes of vital minerals.

  2.   A reproducible and reliable method allowing  the  practitioner to establish a baseline 
  and monitor treatment and cellular mineral balance objectively and repeatedly.

  3.  IntraCellular Diagnostics is a reference laboratory.  ICD offers you a non invasive
  office based specimen collection procedure for reference laboratory processing. The results
  assists physicians in identifying mineral depleted or imbalanced patients with pathophysiological
  complaints and not identifiable with blood tests.

  4.  EXA Test is the solution to measuring dynamic intracellular mineral levels.

  5.  The specimen is easily collected by health care providers via handy kits provided by ICD.

  6.  Offers professional training and assistance through an in-house Clinical Information

  7.  Offers support for interpretation and patient protocol.

  8.  Eligible for Medicare and insurance coverage.

  9.   Easy mail-delivered specimens for fast turn-around, rapid results of individualized
        patient information.

 10.  IntraCellular Diagnostics, Inc is CLIA licensed and HIPPA compliant.
