DECEASED REFERENCE BLOOD SAMPLE COLLECTION
When conducting an examination of the deceased, part of this examination requires the collection of blood samples for examination at the Forensic Science Laboratory.
The PMD2 Kit deals with the collection of reference blood samples from the deceased.
This PMD2 Kit contains everything required for collecting reference blood samples, from one deceased individual. It also contains the necessary “Chain-of-Custody” tracking information as well as “Tamper Evident Seals” and Packaging for delivery to the SAPS Forensic Science Laboratory.
As this kit only focuses on reference blood from the deceased, if you need to collect other evidence such as evidence found on clothing, hair, fingernails or body should be collected with other Evidence Collection Kits used for Sexual Assaults.
Other kits that can be used along with PMD1 Kit are:
- D2 DNA Evidence From Body Collection Kit – Body Fluid, such as blood, semen, saliva that have been left on the body by the perpetrator.
- D3 Reference Hair Samples – For the collection of both scalp hair and pubic hair
- D5 Clothing Collection Kit – For the collection of deceased’s clothing so that the SAPS Forensic Lab can analyze them for additional evidence.
- PMD1 Deceased Sexual Assault Evidence Collection Kit – For the collection of the DNA evidence from the deceased who may have been sexually assaulted.
This PMD2 Deceased Reference Blood Sample Evidence Collection Kit is supplied to Mortuary facilities courtesy of the SAPS Forensic Unit on a case-by-case basis as a way of building forensic evidence in the criminal case of the deceased.
