Development of Latent Blood Stain Using Luminol from Four Different Surfaces after Subjecting to Different Agents over Periods of Time

Domala Sai Krishna and Sujayaraj Samuel

Department of Forensic Science, Jain University, Bangalore, India.




The study is based on analysis of the latent blood stains left over a period of time (15 days), subjected to regents like normal water, hot water, detergent, bleach, ethanol and developed using luminol solution on surfaces like cloth, paper, wooden plank, tile (porous and non-porous). The objective of the study is to understand whether the latent blood stains can be developed after cleaning agents are used to wash the bloodstains on different surfaces (porous and non-porous) and to understand if they can be developed after fifteen days, post subjecting to cleaning agents. Luminol is a chemi-luminescent chemical. The luminol solution is prepared using standard procedure and is used to develop the latent blood stains, the analysis is done based on color, intensity, visibility of the reaction of luminol with latent blood stain. The reaction is positive, concluding that the latent blood stain can be developed over a period of time using luminol after treating the subjected surfaces with reagents mentioned.

Isolation and Characterization of Burkholderia cepacia from Respiratory Infections

Rima Hasan

Department of Community Health, Technical Institute Samawa, Iraq




Present study aimed to study prevalence of B. cepacia in respiratory infection patients, 50 sputum samples were collected from respiratory infection patients were admitted to Al-Hussein training hospital, cultured specimen directly on blood agar then sub cultured on MacConkey agar, bacteria tested biochemically and with antibiotic sensitive test. Results showed 4 samples positive for culture with B. cepacia also isolates showed sensitive force fataxime 100% and resistant 100% for tetracycline.

Currently, lysine supplementation is attaining popularity with the growing aquaculture production. However,with the increasing cost of fish meal in the recent years, it is an ideal time to replace it with cost effective alternative feed sources in order to meet the increasing demands of fisheries sector. Because these alternatives are deficient in certain essential amino acids especially, lysine therefore their subsequent supplementation with lysine has been experimentally undertaken with the aim to evaluate their subsequent impact on fish growth and weight gain capacity. Results indicated that various fish species fed with higher lysine supplemented feed mixtures attained higher weights, increased fecundity, better immunity and demonstrated rapid growth rates as compared to fishes fed with lysine deficient diets. In addition, lysine supplemented alternatives to fish meal are far more economical and will be available in such a higher quantities to meet the demands. Moreover, it is noteworthy that lysine requirement varies with each fish species, therefore, lysine addition into fish feed will only give effective results when the supplemented amount will be in specific range required by our species of interest.
