Comparing AS/400 data to a backup tape

Is there software that can read a backup tape and compare the data to the iSeries data that is the source of the backup? I am backing up SAP data from iSeries 810 to tape cartridge on AIT-3 drive.
I know of no software that can compare a backup tape to data on the iSeries. The best way to verify that what you are backing up can be recovered is to regularly perform a Disaster Recovery Test.
