    Abstract

    By definition, serology is the study of antigen-antibody reactions in vitro [1]. Forensic serology is, however, an expansion of this study and encompasses not only serology but the essentials of biochemistry, immunohematology, immunology, and immunochemistry. The forensic serologist is faced with the dual responsibility of performing analyses within this framework of disciplines and functioning as a criminalist faced with the science of identifications [2]. It is the forensic serologist's ultimate goal to link evidence to a source of origin, if possible.
