The Covid-19 pandemic is prompting people around the world to pay closer attention to sanitation and the key role that it plays in curbing the spread of infection and keeping people healthy.
In this regard, Aratek strongly recommends that fingerprint scanners installed in public places be frequently disinfected.
The easy four-step disinfection routine we recommend is as follows:
Spray commercially-available glass cleaner onto the surface of the scanner, and wipe down with a tissue, paper towel or piece of cloth.
Spray or wet the surface with commercially-available disinfectants such as Lysol, Clorox, or alcohol.
Wipe down with a tissue, paper towel, or piece of cloth.
Perform previous steps every hour.
Likewise, this public health emergency is leading many industries to rethink some of their practices. Touchless biometrics, for one, is quickly emerging as a safer and more hygienic solution for identification and authentication. These include the contactless fingerprint and vein scanners as well as face-based biometrics.
Aratek is in the final stages of developing a Face Recognition terminal that is equipped with an infrared thermometer, delivering a safer and more hygienic mode of authentication while helping detect possible infection cases.
In these critical times, count on Aratek to harness our passion for innovation to develop biometric solutions that help authorities manage the current public health crisis.
Aratek had been quick to implement measures to safeguard the health of its people, and no case of Covid-19 has been identified across the company’s many offices around the world. More importantly, with the China office returning back to work and the Taiwan IBD office doing business as usual, Aratek’s uninterrupted support for its customers worldwide is guaranteed.
Together, we will overcome.
