Techniques for Extraction of Spermatozoa from Stained Clothing: A Critical Review
The location of spermatozoa on the clothing of rape victims is of primary concern to the criminalist seeking evidence of sexual assault.

In this study these techniques have been compared in an effort to determine their relative merits.
