    Abstract

    This laboratory manual was developed to assist death investigators in determining what food, if any, was eaten prior to death by analysis of the gastric contents. It is intended for use by investigators not previously trained in histologic techniques. It is a step-by-step guide for the actual preparation of microscopic slides and identification of gastric materials.
