    Abstract

    Thirty-one different examples of commercially available blood grouping antisera specific for the S, s, K, k, Fya, Fyb, Jka, and Jkb antigens and anti-human globulin sera were serologically evaluated with red cells and in absorption-elution tests to determine their applicability to bloodstain antigen determinations. Nineteen examples of commercially available antisera specific for various Gm and Km antigens and their corresponding anti-D reagents were likewise evaluated in inhibition tests with sera and bloodstains. Elution tests with the blood grouping antisera and inhibition tests with the Gm/Km antisera on a series of aging bloodstains on cotton cloth, and on bloodstains on a number of different substrata, demonstrated that properly evaluated commercial antisera are useful reagents for bloodstain grouping in forensic serology.
