    Will your metal detector pick up iron in your blood?.

    The reason I ask is my C Scope CS3MX seems to pick up a small signal in a couple of people I tried this on.

    The shoulder blade is where the signal is. That is not far from the heart so I wonder if iron in the blood should be a consideration?.

    Disclaimer: Please do not try this on anyone with a pacemaker or pregnant as I am not sure that it is safe.

    I would be interested in your results / comments, Cheers.

    Try fe/co discriminate and see if the signal blanks. Will tell you if its an iron signal. If you still get a signal its probably their microchip.

    If in doubt you should have a dig and see what it is. You never know, it might be something rare or valuable. :p :lol:

    Interesting find, was iron picked up on everyone? And were the people related?
    Reason I ask is that I found out about hemochromatosis in the last few years and that it runs in my family. Asking if this could be picked up with a metal detector was a question I asked my mum who found out she had it..... Along with when you walk past the fridge are you attracted to it. Luckily she isn't fat/offended.

    It looks like my metal detector can indeed pick up the iron in blood.

    As EM suggested above I fiddled around with the discriminate dial and a setting of 5 or higher was needed to eliminate any signal with just my hand passing very near.

    Blood results are all in the normal range as far as I know, may change on a full Moon when handling monster boxes of Silver.

    It's the salt in our system that the detector 's pick up on, not iron.
