Neurotechnologija, a provider of high-precision biometric identification technologies, announced that the company’s MegaMatcher 2.0 fingerprint recognition algorithm has received full certification in the United States National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Minutiae Interoperability Exchange Test (MINEX).
