Abstract

There are many non-cryogenic tissue preservatives that have been employed for human and non-human specimens and in this review we examine their potential for use in field-based forensic operations such as disaster victim identification (DVI). A number of preservatives show promise for short tandem repeat (STR) profiling of human tissue including FTA paper, solid salt, DMSO, ethanol, buffers and proprietary preservatives. Their use will be governed by considerations such as user safety, cost, ease of use and transport
