Also see . . .  Ludwik Karol Teichmann (Wikipedia, in Polish). "His research on lymphatic vessels was recognized by the medical community, and he received awards at universal exhibitions in Paris and Vienna as anatomical preparations....In 1853, he discovered hemin (chlorohemine, Teichmann crystals): the crystalline form of the blood dye. It was only since this discovery of the Polish scientist that it was possible to unequivocally assess the stains left at the crime scene as being from human beings or from the effects of other substances. Teichmann's research has opened the way for all subsequent chemical studies on hemoglobin." (Submitted on June 8, 2018.)
