The Rapid ResponseTM Forensic Blood Test is a rapid test to qualitatively detect low levels of human hemoglobin in forensic samples. The test uses a double antibody sandwich assay to selectively detect human blood at 50 ng/mL or higher.

It is intended for forensic technicians who have found blood stains on a crime scene and need to quickly check the human origin of the blood before sending to a lab for thorough analysis. The use of chromatographic immunoassays to detect human hemoglobin in forensic blood samples has been cited in literature.[1]

Interpretation of test results are: positive (two lines), negative (one line), invalid (no lines or no Control line).
