Abstract

One of the problems encountered in the analysis of dried stains is interpretation of grouping results obtained from mixtures of body fluids whether they be blood and saliva, semen and blood or semen and vaginal secretions. With this problem in mind, one of the questions we have studied is the effect of saliva on the phosphoglucomutase (PGM1) typing of blood.
