    Abstract

    In the practice of forensic medicine, various methods [1–11] have been applied to determine whether a bloodstain is of human or animal origin. In 1901, Uhlenhuth [1], Wassermann and Schütze [2], Stern [3], and Nuttall and Dinkelspiel [4] found the specific precipitation of antiserum and corresponding serum proteins and recommended forensic science use of this phenomenon for the species identification of bloods. The test by means of the interfacial or ring precipitin technique [12] has been widely employed. This method is simple but has poor reproducibility [13], and specific antisera are not easily prepared [14].
