Your partner for the digitization of bioprocesses

Our Mission

The life science industry is about to revolutionize our world in areas such as medicine, pharma, agriculture, and the food industry. For the rapid development of ground-breaking new strategies and products, this industry relies on modern technologies and requires a high degree of automation and digitization.

QUBICON AG combines profound expertise from two disciplines – bioprocessing and software development. We offer a next-level software solution to address challenges across the biotechnological industry and related research fields. Our mission is to innovate bioprocessing by providing the best possible software service to our customers.

Where we came from

Our Story

QUBICON AG originated from a business initiative of Bilfinger Life Science GmbH, which began in Vienna in 2015 in order to tackle the challenges of quality-by-design application in biotechnological processes.

Soon it became clear that a modern, intuitive software with a centralized data platform and advanced control capabilities was required. Since there was no solution meeting this need, we decided to create our own innovative software platform together with software experts from InterFace AG in 2018. Since 2021 QUBICON AG is an independent company, and our software is used by industry clients and leading European life-science universities.
