I've been asked about doing an alizarin red s stain for gunshot residue by the folks at our local coroner's office.  I find many references to it but no specific procedure for it.  Does anyone do this or know of a procedure for it?  Would something like Dahl's work for gunshot?  Appreciate any help.  Thanks.
