SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Integrated Biometrics, LLC, developer of the world’s most compact, lightweight, and energy-efficient FBI-certified fingerprint scanners, has been named one of South Carolina’s Fastest Growing Companies.
This recognition comes on the heels of Inc. magazine ranking Integrated Biometrics No. 965 on the annual Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
“Our industry is driven by the need for personal identity enrolment and verification throughout the world, with fingerprint biometrics being the technology of choice,” stated Steve Thies, Integrated Biometrics CEO, adding, “We have developed an innovative, patented and market disrupting FBI-certified light emitting sensor (LES) film technology which generates very high quality fingerprint images in a compact, energy efficient design.”
The company’s scanners are designed for durability with no breakable glass components and are able to withstand tough operating environments with minimal maintenance, while providing accurate high-resolution fingerprint images even at extreme hot or cold temperatures. The patented LES technology at the core of each of the company’s products is durable and works flawlessly in both direct and indirect sunlight. Whereas other scanners based on older optical prism technology require a secondary light source to illuminate a fingerprint. When a finger is placed in contact with LES film, the underside of the film produces a fingerprint image in light, capturing the image in less time and without the need for special environmental considerations.
This unique aspect enables Integrated Biometrics products to be used in global applications for national ID, voter identification, finance, healthcare, background checks, visas, law enforcement, border control, and criminal and terrorist database purposes.
