Integrated Biometrics, a designer and manufacturer of FBI-certified fingerprint sensors, will protect its line of fingerprint scanners with an anti-microbial and anti-scratch and stain coating solution developed by NBD Nanotechnologies.

The Repel Flex MBED is reportedly an ultra-thin, flexible and transparent coating that reduces microbial growth, leaving high-traffic contact surfaces safer to touch and easier to clean, according to its developers.
