Bloodstain Pattern Analysis: A compara- tive Study between Spatter for Human and Porcine Blood

Jessica Beaudry

The forensic investigation of violent crimes and deaths lead to one of the most significant and frequently encountered types of physical evidence, blood. From the early discoveries and advances in technology, the field of forensics continues to grow, especially in the field of bloodstain pattern analysis (BPA). It is necessary to devise experiments or controlled reproductions to continue the expansion of the BPA field. Human blood can be extremely dangerous due to infectious diseases. There are a few safer alternatives to using human blood and they include using spatter training blood and porcine blood. This study focuses on the comparison between human, porcine, Evident, and Sirchie spatter training blood. The data strongly indicates that while porcine blood is comparable to human blood, Evident and Sirchie spatter training blood is not.
