    protection of the document basis; -printing methods; – physicochemical protection; – complex security features;

    Additional examination of: – fragments of document images depending on the degree of absorption or reflection of IR light document alterations such as erasure, etching etc.

    Automatic reading of:
    Textual information from machine readable zone of ICAO compliant documents (ID-1, ID-2, ID-3) 1D and 2D barcodes
    Information from RFID chips in eDocuments (DG1 to DG15, BAC, EAC, AA, PA, TA, PACE) and verification of those chips

  • Mobile Workstations

    Regula 8003M is constructed in a protective case. The mobile workstation consists of a notebook (model is selected at customer’s request), two light tables, a spectral luminescent magnifier Regula 4177 and an optical module Regula 4178 supported by Regula Forensic Studio software and a compact device Regula 1025.
