CSPro does not support the collection of biometric data. However, take a look at this post to see how you might solve it:

Whatever fingerprint and/or iris scanner you connect to the Android device should come with its own app. There is no way to export the fingerprint data from the built-in fingerprint readers on Android. You can only use it to check that a person's fingerprint matches a fingerprint that was previously registered. This means that to collect fingerprint data you need to connect an external fingerprint reader. I'm not sure about built-in iris scanners since those are fairly new to Android but I would guess that the same would apply.
