    Abstract

    Histological and histochemical examinations of trace evidence were performed by lifting the specimens onto cellophane tape. To ensure adhesion of the samples during the staining, the surface of the tape was coated with 2% agarose after the sampling. These samples were ready for such direct stains as hematoxylin and eosin, benzidine, and periodic acid-Schiff to determine proteins and acid phosphatase. Histological analyses may be performed with the same range of smear preparations.
