Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) samples extracted from stained pap smear, semen smear and postcoital slides were amplified by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and typed for the AmpliType® PM and HLA DQα alleles. HLA DQ α and PM types consistent with blood controls from the donors were obtained. Stained cells fixed to slides can provide a valuable source of material for determining a genetic profile of the sample donor, particularly in sexual assault cases and possibly in missing person cases involving women.
