Every Sexual Assault situation is different and various scenarios will determine the type of evidence that can be collected from a patient in search of the perpetrator’s DNA.
The D2 Kit deals with collection samples from the body of a sexual assault patient. The purpose of taking swab samples, scrapings and collecting loose hairs and debris is to collect samples of evidence that may have been deposited on the outside of the patient’s body which may assist to connect the perpetrator with the alleged assault through DNA analysis of the samples.
This D2 Kit is contains everything required for collecting contamination-free DNA evidence from the body of one patient. It also contains the necessary “Chain-of-Custody” tracking information as well as “Tamper Seals” and Packaging for delivery to the SAPS Forensic Lab.
As this kit only focuses on the body of your patient, evidence found on clothing or the genital area should be collected with other Evidence Collection Kits used for Sexual Assaults.
Other kits that can be used along with D2 Kit are:
- D1 Adult Sexual Assault Evidence Collection Kit – Collection of body fluid evidence from the patient’s genital area.
- D3 Reference Hair Samples – For the collection of both scalp hair and pubic hair
- D5 Clothing Collection Kit – For the collection of patient’s clothing so that the SAPS Forensic Lab can analyze them for additional evidence.
This D2 Evidence from the Body Collection Kit is supplied to Medical facilities courtesy of the SAPS Forensic Unit on a Patient-by-Patient basis as a way of building forensic evidence in the criminal case your patient has reported.
