Abstract

In the realm of forensic science, false positive results are a serious consideration. The tests that are utilized in a forensic science laboratory should be fully validated, and the scientists should be aware of any problems that can occur (National Research Council). Several detergents and other soap products contain bacterial amylase (Niyonzima) (Hole). This study delves into false positive results that can transpire from detergents or detergent residues when testing for saliva using the Phadebas Tube Test.
