Startek (FM220)

If you need a PC-based fingerprint reader, the FM220U USB fingerprint reader is the product for you. An STQC Certified & Registered Device compliant single fingerprint scanner, this UIDAI approved authentication device was designed specifically to be used for Aadhaar.

Fast & Secure

This compact and elegant fingerprint scanner comes with USB 2.0 interface for high-speed transfers. It also has fast scanning and matching speeds for maximum efficiency. You have the ability to set different security levels for different False Rejection Rates (FRR)/False Acceptance Rates (FAR) demands. It also supports verification on different server platforms.

Practical Usability

The FM220U fingerprint scanner has been successfully tested and deployed in remote corners of India, and it has proven to work in dusty and harsh conditions. Shock-proof to prevent any damage caused by accidents, the FM220U is also protected against dust and water ingress. Its ergonomic design guides the finger to the optimal position for effective scanning. Thus, it not only provides non-distorted image quality, but it also comes with adjustable image magnification to ensure the best success rates when scanning children’s fingerprints. The high image resolution of 600 dpi ensures the highest quality image you could need.

Techshino (TCO310)

Biometronic has partnered with Techshino to manufacture standalone fingerprint scanners that seamlessly plug in and work with the InFocus Mobile. A compact, high-quality optical fingerprint device, it has been certified by FBI-PIV, RoHS, WEEE, and WHQL (Win7/8/8.1/10).

Quality Build

To ensure the highest build quality, we are using sapphire glass for the scanning surface. We chose to go with sapphire glass over other materials as sapphire glass is one of the best options available on the market right now. It is nearly twice as hard as standard glass, with about 10 times the compressive strength of stainless steel. It is also highly transparent, allowing light of wavelengths from 150 nanometers to 5500 nanometers to pass through.

Scratch and Shatter-Resistant

In other words, it is extremely scratch and shatter-resistant with high levels of optical transparency, creating the best conditions for capturing fingerprints for biometric authentication while remaining handy and portable.

Mobile-integrated iris scanners

The next evolution of Biometronic’s iris-enabled products is the InFocus Mobile.


Patented outdoor capture technology can capture the iris image under various environments, including under direct sunlight. Direct sunlight is usually too bright to capture images of the iris accurately, but our technology overcomes this constraint and smashes this challenge.


In a rush? No problem. The embedded algorithm in the InFocus Mobile can complete an iris capture and pull up the relevant data in less than 2 second so you can just snap and go.


The aim of Aadhaar is to create a truly inclusive India, and our iris technology has been proven to be usable across a wide range of demographics. Field test have proven that our technology works on the aged as well as blind and disabled, achieving an astonishing 99.62% success rate. Our iris capture is an extremely reliable and accurate biometric device with virtually zero FRR (false rejection rate).


The biometric data in the InFocus Mobile is encrypted by a UIDAI key at the chip level within the device, making it impossible for anyone but the Aadhaar server to see the information. This encryption makes it extremely secure and prevents information leakage of all kinds, keeping your data safe.


The InFocus Mobile will always be priced as low as we can make it, and we will continue to try to push prices even lower through more efficient processes. We will never compromise on the quality and efficiency we deliver. This is our promise to you, our clients, to bring iris and fingerprint authentication to everyone across India.
