The intent of this paper is to report a time-saving modification of the system reported by Parkin and Adams  in conjunction with the developments of Streeter and Lovaas . It has resulted in the development of a starch gel electrophoretic technique that can rapidly determine, with clear and reproducible results, the esterase D (EsD) phenotype of both fresh blood and bloodstains within 30 rain, as compared with the 2 h required for previously reported starch gel techniques  and 60 min for bloodstains by cellulose acetate methods .
