IKOSA provides a user-friendly premium software solution that meets high-quality standards at the same time. Thanks to it we have been able to bring our studies on the CAM Model a huge step ahead and we are eagerly looking forward to future joint projects.”

Anurag Jamaiyar, PhD

Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA

At the moment, we have 12 IKOSA users in our lab, taking advantage of the platform for quantitative analyses of images from in vitro assays. We now get reproducible results and have ruled out the bias related to manual analysis. IKOSA is accessible online and we can use it wherever we are. We produce a variety of samples daily and process them in batches. We really appreciate the high throughput capabilities of IKOSA and the amount of time it saves us. Tedious analysis tasks are now more fun, and this keeps everybody motivated.”

Dr Irina Druzhinina

KEW Royal Botanic Gardens

It is a pleasure to establish a long-term cooperation with KML Vision not only because of high efficiency and competence but due to the company’s open-minded policy and connectedness to the clients. My laboratory and our partners from the Sun Yat-sen University in China will keep working with KML Vision on developing the algorithms that allow us to uncover the physiology of fungi for their applications in biotechnology and agriculture.”

Prof. DI Dr. Johannes Schmid

Medical University of Vienna, Austria

The team of KML Vision was extremely supportive in setting up the IKOSA platform for our needs, which enabled us to perform demanding image storage and analysis tasks on a modern team-shared cloud space. The features of IKOSA are perfectly suited to create synergies between team members and collaborators and will therefore foster our research both for preclinical disease models, as well as for patient samples.”
