bloodstains and grouped them in groups

 The procedure relied on specific antibodies
found in the bloodstains to determine the

HOW IT AFFECTED
THE
WORLD
A woman found bloodstains on her husband’s
shirt and accused him of adultery. The
husband asked for help to prove his loyalty,
and Lattes used his procedure to determine
that the blood was that husband’s.
 A man was suspected of murder because of
the bloodstains found on his coat. Lattes used
his procedure and the bloodstains did not
match the blood type of the victim, thus
making the man innocent.
