about kml vision

Enhancing image analysis with automated solutions.

“During several software projects in academia and industry, we noticed a growing demand for intelligent solutions that would allow life sciences and healthcare researchers to analyze digital images of their samples with less manual work” says Dr. Philipp Kainz, CEO.


“We got interested in finding a solution for this issue and together with physicist DDr. Michael Mayrhofer-Reinhartshuber KML VISION was founded in 2016.”

“A year later, we started working on the IKOSA Platform that helps to optimize the everyday workflow of our customers in the Pharmaceutical Industry, CROs and Core Facilities. It focuses on management of large-scale image data and automated image analysis based on Artificial Intelligence.


By now, we have introduced cutting-edge applications to the market that support reproducible extraction of accurate and validated information from images. We understand the great diversity of requirements for solutions on the market, so we provide tailor-made solutions for the needs of our clients.”
