Founder of grouping ABO dried bloodstains
PowerPoint by:
Sara Glowacz and
Joanna Pupa

Leone Lattes was a professor at the Institute
of Forensic Medicine in Turin Italy. Dr. Lattes
developed a procedure to apply blood testing
to stains on fabric and other materials.
He used a method for determining the ABO
type of bloodstains that relied on detection of
the specific antibodies.

In 1915 he came up with a procedure in which
dried bloodstains could be grouped as A, B,
AB or O, by using saline solution to restore
dried blood to its liquid form. In 1932, he
invented a way to test for antibodies in dried
blood flakes as well. Latte's procedure of ABO
typing of dried blood was the first of its kind.


Dr. Latte's procedure is still
used today by
some forensic
scientists. Tests for the
ABO antibodies in
bloodstains are called
Lattes tests.
