The MorphoTrak system is a live digital fingerprint scanner. Out with the old ink and roller system that can take days for processing, this digital way of capturing fingerprints uses a camera and video system. This system not only allows for better detail and faster processing, it also can instantly send the files to an automated identification system for comparisons against previously gathered prints.

Fun fact: The automated identification system is often called “CODUS” in television and film crime labs.
