Paper Abstract

Two fluorescent probes, ANS and TNS, have been further examined for their effectiveness in acting as fluorescent probes for the detection of blood stain patterns. These materials, which are not fluorescent in aqueous solution, react non-specifically with protein and enable an observer to discern a blood pattern when viewed under UV light at 365 nm. Other possible fluorescent probes have been evaluated and rejected for various reasons; these include luminol, tetramethylbenzidine, p-hvdroxy-phenylacetic acid, 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid, and 2,7-aminofluorene.
