active oxygen at a crime scene

CG Bauer
I've read that bleach with active oxygen removes indications of hemoglobin, which makes using luminol ineffective for discovering blood at a crime scene. Can forensics folks test a crime scene for the use of oxygenated bleach as a neutralizing agent? I'm a crime novelist. Thanks.
