Abstract : The first biophysical process that takes place after death is deterioration of phospho-lipid cellular membranes due to lack of oxygen. A polarograph can monitor the process, giving accurate readings from 30 min. to six hrs. after death. Decrease of chemiluminescence can also be measured. (Author)
