On clothing, in particular underwear, several body fluids can be present due to natural causes. Knowledge on limitations of tests used for locating stains or indication to their origin is therefore important. The Phadebas® Forensic Press test was used for amylase detection in single source samples on textile, and underwear with naturally deposited stains. Results show that other body fluids than saliva can react within the time frame stipulated on false positives, implying caution interpreting positive results.
