"The smartTOUCH GDO(TM) is another great example of the growing adoption of fingerprint sensors in mainstream consumer products that leverage the convenient security of our TruePrint(R)-based fingerprint sensors."

"Our company has spent years researching and testing all of the competing fingerprint sensors to determine which one provides the most reliability and cost efficiency for a consumer based product," commented Mark Basile, Chief Executive Officer for bioMETRX, Inc. "Based on our findings, we selected AuthenTec's AES2510 slide sensor, which has been engineered into our proprietary smartTOUCH(TM) product architecture, and we have experienced very positive feedback from end users."
