    Abstract

    The location of spermatozoa on the clothing of rape victims is of primary concern to the criminalist seeking evidence of sexual assault. The identification of acid phosphatase, spermine, and choline is of secondary importance relative to finding intact spermatozoa. A number of techniques for extraction of spermatozoa are available. In this study these techniques have been compared in an effort to determine their relative merits.
