Are fingerprints really unique?

Your fingerprint is unique. To capture the uniqueness of your fingerprint even better JRC has developed a 3D touchless laser model that is even more secure.

JRC has created a more accurate 3D touchless model called FLARE using laser sensing technology. Fingerprint Laser Recognistion is user-friendly and compliant with the latest 2D touch based technology. It is an innovative way of digitally capturing our unique fingerprint in a more representative manner.
