The invention relates to a device for biometric identification with the use of fingerprints and/or hand characteristics, which has a sensor unit which is directed in a scanning direction into the area of an optical gate, the optical gate for initializing the sensor unit for scanning a sharp scan image or from scan images of the fingers and/or hand of a person is adapted, the device further having at least one light source, which is also directed into the area of the optical gate, the sensor unit, the optical gate and optionally also the light source with a control and computing module are coupled with software for controlling the device and its parts and for scanning a scan image or the scan images of fingers and/or a hand and for evaluating the fingerprints and/or hand characteristics, the sensor unit being permanently focused on a focus area that corresponds to the optical gate is assigned and the sensor unit, the optical gate, the control and computation module and optionally also the light source are configured for scanning a single sharp scan image of the fingers and/or the hand at the time of their passage through the focus space.
