Identification of Body Fluids Using Raman Spectroscopy
A one step, confirmatory testing method to identify forensic body fluid samplesCurrent tests for blood, semen, vaginal fluid, and saliva are time consuming, destructive to trace evidence and/or contaminate the crime scene. Furthermore, some field tests are presumptive and only eliminate the possibility of certain substances, requiring further laboratory...
