According to the company, which has a focus on subject authentication for the clinical trials industry, this particular module is designed to enhance subject searches and to boost site enrollment accuracy. This will also feature a fingerprint scanning device, which accompanies the subject authentication module.

“When we launched our first group of sites in 2009, there were still a lot of questions about fingerprint and biometric technology in general. However, what we see today is that this technology is becoming more and more mainstream. We even see the latest smartphones using fingerprint biometrics as the foundation for personal phone security.”
