Biometric and identification specialists Suprema have announced that their latest fingerprint live scanner has been fully tested and has attained certification from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for meeting FIPS 201 standards.

The RealScan-D is also an FBI IQS Appendix F certified device, but is a portable live scanner, which captures dual fingerprint, single flat and rolled fingerprint images.

Rounding out the FIPS 201 certified devices if the RealScan-G1— the latest addition to the company’s line of fingerprint live scanners. The RealScan-G1 features a high-precision, durable optical structure, captures 500dpi images, is IP54-rated and features a dust and waterproof structure.
