The Salima you mention is probably Salima Ikram:
Dr. Salima Ikram has been teaching Egyptology at the American University in Cairo for six years. Her areas of specialty are Egyptian archaeology, mummification, both human and animal, cultural resource management with a focus on museums, experimental archaeology, zooarchaeology, ethnoarchaeology, and aspects of daily life in ancient Egypt. She is co-director of the Animal Mummy Project at the Egyptian Museum, Cairo, as well as the North Kharga Oasis Survey. Dr. Ikram has worked in Greece, Turkey, the Sudan and Egypt.
She is considered to be quite an athority on mummies, especially those of animals.
In the article I posted, it seems that the moving of mummies to new cases gave the "tester" bits of mummy pieces to use in DNA testing. It would seem to me that any such particals would be very corrupted, too much so for any accurate testing to be done.
