​“As a pharmaceutical company, it is important for us to work together with innovative companies such as KML Vision which share our vision of the production of the future. With their smart solutions and their AI-based technology, we are able to support our team on the shop floor and can even lift our already highly quality driven processes to the next level.”

Reference Prof. Dr. Irina S. Druzhinina

“The AI algorithm developed by KML Vision allowed us to uncover an evolutionary process in fungi. We will certainly continue working with this company!”


Ao.Univ.Prof. DI Dr.

"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."
