The analysis of condom traces has recently been added to the standard forensic examination protocol of
sexual assault and rape cases. Several recent studies have thus focussed on the detection of condom
components and classification of the chemical profiles using statistics, obtaining very promising results.
The purpose of the present article is to critically review the literature regarding condom chemical
analysis. A large analytical panel of both destructive and non-destructive methods has been proposed for
the analysis of condom traces, each offering completely different analysis type and thus complementary
information. However, few studies have considered these traces within a human matrix, which is
necessary to establish an accessible protocol for forensic laboratories to allow this type of analysis.
Additionally, issues remain concerning reproducibility, sensitivity, and the validation of analytical
parameters. Considering that the demand for condom residue analysis is increasing, there is a definite
need for further research on the forensic analysis of condom traces in order to offer quality services to the
criminal justice system.
