    Abstract

    The identification of a suspected stain or crust as being blood can be a difficult task for the forensic scientist. To date, either the benzidine test, discovered in 1904, or the phenolphthalein test [1] has been employed with either the Takayama crystal test, discovered in 1912, or the Teichmann crystal test [2] in confirming the presence of blood.
