Design considerations for the implementation of artificial fluids as blood substitutes for educational and training use in the forensic sciences.


Strengthening education and training in the forensic sciences requires the implementation of new and innovative technologies into existing teaching strategies. Scientific research in the design and use of artificial substitutes can offer new and advantageous contributions to such initiatives. This article describes the relevant considerations and advantages to designing a forensic blood substitute for use in forensic education and training facilities. BPA training materials must ensure safety, reliability, feasibility, and value added. Each of these considerations is addressed with a particular focus on the educational benefits (value added) that a forensic blood substitute can offer. In particular, the visual affordances of the material designed for this study will be highlighted in terms of its educational benefits to the training of scientists.
