And in NZ they were taken out of them tubes and put into sandwich bags to be photocopied.I think the pics were of 41 and 46 when she did LCN on them.
She did take 42 out of its container on April 23, 2004 and put it into a smaller tube for transport to NZ.
I didnt think that was especially relevant as the last time we have any evidence of KK samples been tested prior to that was on "24/9/99 - Performed Profiler Plus typing on Karrakatta rape victim's reference sample and offender's sperm sample". (Webb statement).

"The court has heard that when ESR examined AJM 42 - the left middle fingernail that the state says contains Mr Edwards DNA once combined with AJM 40 - they removed the actual fingernail from its sealed tube and placed it in a sealed plastic bag so they could photocopy it before placing it back in the tube.
Dr Harbison explained the tube containing the crucial exhibit was opened and wet and dry swabs were carried out. She said this involved swabbing the nail and the inside of the tube.
But then she told the court the actual nail was taken out of the tube and placed in the sealed plastic bag - which she described as "like the ones you buy in the supermarkets" - and then photocopied before being returned to the tube."
