    Abstract

    Analysis of bloodstains subjected to heat or improper collection techniques may yield expressions of erythrocyte acid phosphatase (EAP) phenotypes other than those originally coded. This report illustrates a case in which the deterioration of an EAP Type CB sample caused it to appear as an EAP Type C. Suggestions are offered to minimize such problems and to make the analyst aware of possible misinterpretations.
