Crossed electroimmunodiffusion was evaluated as a means for establishing the individuality ("fingerprinting") of human bloodstains. In ten separate examinations on stains from each of ten persons there was at least one peak with a unique range in height so that individualization was possible. The heights of certain peaks showed statistically significant female-male differences.
