- •DNA collection devices were placed at varying distances from individuals.
- •Amount of deposited DNA was measured at varying time points for each distance.
- •Time, distance and donor all had an effect on DNA transfer frequency and amount.
- •This provide useful data to assign probabilities in activity level evaluation.
- •Information should be used when considering contamination prevention practices.
