Hardly any forensic use is being made of the informative Hp subtype polymorphism because of the need for Hp purification which so far has been considered time-consuming. The introduction to forensic serology of highly sensitive iso-electric focusing encouraged some rethinking of the problem of Hp preparation. Proceeding from existing experience, we have succeeded in developing a practicable method which meets the demands on paternity assessment.
