Washington, DC-based Biometrac provides a flexible biometric identification platform for mobile devices including smartphones and tablets. In applications ranging from health to disaster relief, Biometrac builds solutions to identify people in real time, wherever they are.

Biometrac?s mobile platform enables the identification of individuals in areas where it was not previously feasible. From authenticating clinical trial participants in rural eastern Africa to helping researchers map connections in the social networks of tuberculosis patients, Biometrac brings hi-impact technology to the places it’s most needed.

Through broadband Biometrac offloads computationally expensive biometric analysis to a network of specialized servers. By doing this our clients need only a smartphone or tablet to identify someone in a massive database in seconds.
