    The prospect of using drugs or their metabolites as discriminating markers in bloodstains was first discussed by Curry [1]. This approach could prove particularly useful in cases where blood protein has been denatured or where other evidence suggests that a particular drug has been consumed. The collection of body fluids as stains could also be of interest to the toxicologist. Filter paper techniques offer advantages over conventional methods in terms of sample stability and ease of storage and shipment. A recent publication described the radioimmunoassay of morphine recovered from blood and urine stains [2].
