2010). Saliva stains may be found on bite-marks, cigarette butts, and drinking vessels (Abaz et al. 2002, Shaler 2002). As will be described later in this chapter, a molecular biology approach using messenger RNA profiling is being developed to enable sensitive and specific tests for various body fluids including saliva (Juusola & Ballantyne 2003, Hanson & Ballantyne 2010). This approach holds promise to permit simultaneous tests for blood, semen, and saliva with great specificity and sensitivity.
