Abstract

Many kinds of forensic biological materials found at scenes of murder and traffic accidents are brought to forensic scientists for identification. Although various immunological methods and DNA techniques for the species identification from blood and bloodstains are now available, there are few investigations for blood grouping and species identification from tissue particles or tissue debris(Fechner et al 1989). In this study we report a method for species identification from tissue particles using lectin- and immuno-histochemical techniques.
