Do it Yourself Lab Activity 1 (Blood) 50 points

Time: Allow 30 minutes to complete part one. Allow one hour for drying time and then you can do the measurements and finish the assignment.

Part 1
Gather the following items from your lab kit:
Gloves
Ruler
Phenolphthalein Presumptive Test
Synthetic Blood
Cotton Tipped Applicators
Sharpie
Evidence tape
Evidence Bag

Collect the following items from home:
At least 2 sheets (but more for mistakes) of white printer paper (no lines).
Tape of some kind.
A clipboard, book, cookie sheet or other hard surface a bit larger than the size of your paper.
Smart phone camera or digital camera for photos

Find a clean surface where you can work. You will want to cover the area with wrapping paper, saran wrap, an old sheet, aluminum foil or anything you have to keep the blood contained- it will stain.

Watch the Video Demonstration in Module:
Complete the lab and allow at least one hour for stains to dry.
