  • Patent number: 8398118
    Abstract: A device and method for allowing secure self-capture of multifold fingerprint impressions. The device includes a strip of fingerprint labels wrapped about a tubular ergonomic roller. A subject inserts the thumb of a first hand into the ergonomic roller and grips the roller between his thumb and forefinger. The subject then rolls the inked tip of a finger on his second hand across a label in a first rotational direction while rotating the ergonomic roller in an opposite rotational direction. To prevent fraudulent substitution of fingerprinting materials that are distributed to a subject, the materials are marked with machine readable invisible barcodes that are associated with a unique identification number. After a subject captures his fingerprints and submits his materials to a trusted observer, the barcodes on the materials are compared to the identification number to determine whether the materials submitted are in-fact those that were distributed to the subject.

  • Publication number: 20110311111
    Abstract: A system for capturing specified biometric self-capture specimens to create a record used for verification comprising a processor, scanner, printer, and secure database. The processor is programmed to 1) activate the scanner to create a digital image of the biometric self-capture specimens in a uniquely flexible predetermined format, 2) link the image to information assigned to the specimens, 3) assign a score to individual components of the image based on quality according to a standard for that component, 4) display the score to a user, 5) retain the components with the highest scores, 6) arrange the retained components and the linked information in the predetermined format to create a record, active the printer to print the record either as an electronic file or a paper file, and 7) transmit the electronic file to a secure database in a secure manner.
