The RealScan-F live scanner has been qualified forthe highest standard of FBI certification (IQS Appendix F), and captures single flat/roll, two finger flats, 4 finger slap, writer's edge and palm prints. The device performs incredible an scanning rate of over 15 frames per second (in rolled fingerprint capture) which enables faster processing speed hence makes the device ideal for mass fingerprinting application such as nationwide AFIS operation.
