Company History

Two decades ago, a medical diagnostic company began developing multispectral imaging techniques for conducting non-invasive glucose monitoring. From a detailed optical interrogation of skin, it became apparent to the researchers that the optical characteristics of subsurface skin are highly variable from person to person — the basis of a biometric.

Lumidigm was formed to commercialize and expand on the use of this subsurface information to differentiate between people. Using these principles, Lumidigm created the best-performing fingerprint sensors available. Today, Lumidigm has expanded multispectral imaging to authenticate not only people but credentials and barcodes, making two-factor authentication on a single device a reality.
