The University Medical Center Hamburg (UKE) has also increased its protective measures by using DERMALOG's Fever Detection Camera. The system of the German biometrics company measures body temperature within one second by scanning people's faces using state-of-the-art sensor technology.

Covid-19 currently shows how important it is to prevent the spread of infection as far as possible. Hospitals are facing a serious challenge, as staff and patients are at increased risk of infection. Fever screenings are increasingly being carried out at hospital entrances to identify persons with symptoms. Temperature checks are already part of daily operations at many airports. In the meantime, many healthcare facilities are also using this technology to provide better protection for patients and staff.

The University Medical Center Hamburg (UKE) has also increased its protective measures by using DERMALOG's Fever Detection Camera. The system of the German biometrics company measures body temperature within one second by scanning people's faces using state-of-the-art sensor technology. If an increased temperature is detected, the system sets off an alarm. High accuracy, even from a distance of up to 2 meters, is another advantage of the camera.

"Fever detection allows us to identify infected persons before they enter the hospital and thus reduce the risk of infection for staff and patients," says Professor Klaus Püschel, Chair of the Legal Medicine Department at UKE.

DERMALOG's thermal camera was initially developed for border controls and airports. The system is increasingly being used in healthcare facilities and clinics. Companies and institutions in more than 40 countries have already put the new "Made in Germany" technology from DERMALOG into operation for additional health protection.

As a pioneer in the development of biometric products and solutions, DERMALOG has been shaping the world of security for more than 20 years. We have been and keep on revolutionizing biometric security products for law enforcement, civil governmental agencies like national registration, voter and driver registrations, health agencies, security agencies and develop solutions for access and data security, authorization and authentication services as well as mobile security. Governmental organizations as well as public and private businesses all over the world trust DERMALOG’s expertise and state of the art biometric products.

DERMALOG Identification Systems GmbH, based in Hamburg, is the largest German biometrics manufacturer and is known as the Biometrics Innovation Leader. A team of scientists is constantly developing our 'Automatic Biometric Identification Systems' (ABIS) and 'Automatic Fingerprint Identification Systems' (AFIS), including cutting-edge fingerprint scanning devices. The product portfolio is complemented by biometric border control systems and biometric ID cards and passports as well as biometric voting systems.

'FingerLogin', 'FingerPayment' and 'FingerBanking' are also solutions developed by DERMALOG, as well as systems for automatic Face and Iris recognition. Apart from Germany and Europe, the main markets of DERMALOG are in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. Today, more than 150 government agencies and over 40 banks in more than 80 countries are using DERMALOGs technology and turnkey solutions for biometric identification.

In addition, DERMALOG offers biometric solutions for banks and for manufacturers of automatic teller machines (ATM). This includes the largest biometric banking project world-wide (USD 50 million), which was delivered by DERMALOG (BVN Project): 23 banks and the Central Bank of Nigeria were provided with DERMALOGs ABIS, which prevents double identities among bank customers by means of finger and face recognition and guarantees the best-possible biometric identification of customers (KYC) for these banks. Furthermore, many ATMs across the globe have been equipped with DERMALOG's fingerprint technology.
