Forensic Serology provides a comprehensive and complete synopsis of forensic serology. The book includes background information on different biological substances that can be detected, how the serological tests work, what the testing looks like, how to interpret the results, and what those results tell us. Coverage includes all aspects of serological testing, including basic presumptive testing, confirmatory testing, and new methods of testing, such as mRNA, methylation, proteomics, and much more. The book is written at a level that anyone with basic knowledge of science can fully understand, thus filling a gap in the market.

Shanan S. Tobe
Dr. Tobe currently teaches the FEPAC accredited Masters of Science in Forensic Science program, which includes: forensic biology, human molecular biology, statistical analysis and biostatistics, forensic microscopy and forensic serology. He is developing a research lab continuing his research on Forensic Wildlife investigations, increased human forensic DNA sensitivity and on presumptive testing of biological fluids. Dr. Tobe’s Master’s research on serology tests for blood was published as a landmark paper in the Journal of Forensic Sciences and has been cited over 100 times. He has since collaborated on other serological research and is the perfect author for such a text.
