Isorg is a pioneer in organic and printed electronics for large area photodetectors and image sensors. It offers a new generation of high-performance imagers with the capability for easy integration into systems with various shapes or form factors. Its flexible image sensors have application in consumer electronics, ID security and access control, IoT and medical devices. In 2016, it launched the first worldwide proof-of-concept of a large-sized high-resolution (500 dpi) flexible plastic fingerprint sensor for biometric security and other applications. Created in 2010 and partnering with CEA-Liten, a leading French innovation center for new energy technologies and nanomaterials, Isorg has raised €47.8M (approx. $58.4M) in three financing rounds.
Program Manager | Biometry Security & Identity
Jennifer Aflalo is Program Manager in Isorg. She has been working for over 10 years on developing and producing organic based devices such as organic photovoltaic (OPV) cells and organic photodiodes (OPD). She has been part of several European and research projects for the integration of OPD based sensor for Xray imaging or vein recognition application. Her focus is now on managing the integration of OPD sensors into fingerprint scanners (small and large area) for the security market.
JENETRIC are experts in digital fingerprint capturing. We develop and manufacture biometric most advanced fingerprint scanners that meet today’s requirements for simplicity, mobility and multipurpose usage. We focus not only on technical parameters, but much more on a noticeable simplification of fingerprint capturing for operators and users. The broad spectra of today’s applications for fingerprints require devices that can be used regardless of the language, culture and education of the users. Our LIVETOUCH QUATTRO, LIVETOUCH QUATTRO Compact and LIVETOUCH Flipcase fingerprint scanners represent a new class of compact and user-friendly fingerprint scanners that simplify and improve the fingerprint capture process.
