Advanced Examination of All Questioned Documents

Top and bottom optical systems with high resolution 14MP and 12MP cameras. Two optical systems allow for viewing both the front and reverse sides of a page without flipping it over. Movable top optical system allows examining thick objects, such as books or artworks.

The device is equipped with a high-resolution spectrometer, a hyperspectral imaging module, 3D imaging module, a light source for anti-Stokes luminescence, a motorized XY translation stage, modules for reading MRZs, RFID chips, hidden images (IPI), and 1D and 2D barcodes.

Optical magnification is up to 320x. The device has 30 types of light sources and over 20 light filters.


The XY translation stage allows for high-precision positioning with a step width of 0.01 mm along multiple axes and image stitching. The stitching mode helps to obtain the whole image of an A4 format in a single click. 

A unique motorized oblique lighting system, which allows changing the light source's angle of incidence, gives a wide range of opportunities for examining the microrelief of a document in the visible and infrared spectrum range.

The Regula Forensic Studio software enhances the efficiency of document analysis by giving total control over all comparator’s features. 


Highlighted Features

Two optical systems

With the best-in-class optical magnification and camera resolution, enable document examination using top and bottom optical paths without turning examined objects over. Two cameras (14 and 12 Mp) and integrated backside illumination (BSI) technology for capturing sharp images preserves all the tiny elements that are crucial for further object examination.

Movable object stage

XY translation stage for high-performance positioning (up to 110 mm along the X-axis and 70 mm along the Y-axis). Allows micro- displacements (0.01 mm) of examined objects.

Examination of relief

Unique motorized system of oblique lighting helps to carry out relief examination in the visible and IR spectrum range with the possibility to save settings and repeat accurate examination results.

Large objects

The unique lifting system of the top optical path can boost the field of view up to 310×220 mm when examining large documents and objects.

Superb features

Multifocus, HDR, Super Resolution. Hyperspectral analysis and examinations with a spectrometer.

3D visualization

Possibility to build a 3D-model of a document fragment. Examination of surface relief, detection of printing methods, and analysis of overlapping objects such as a signature and a stamp.
