PARTNERS & COOPERATIONS
Besides several projects with leading biopharma companies, we are officially in cooperation with the following partners.
Advanced Process Control
Qubicon is a software platform for centralized data management, advanced monitoring and flexible process control in biomanufacturing. Qubicon and Novasign partnered to refine the use of hybrid models for soft sensing and model-based process control. Therefore, process data can be directly exported from Qubicon to the Novasign hybrid-modelling toolbox and developed models can be seamlessly integrated in Qubicon for real-time application.
Siemens and Novasign together implemented hybrid models for soft sensing on the SIPAT enviroment. As an example, these soft sensors can be used to start industion or transfection at a particular biomass concentration during cultivation processes. The implementation and functionalities can be accessed in the Siemens' Living Lab in Vienna. Please contact our partner if you are interested.
The Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) supported this project from the very beginning on. For Novasign the investment of 1.2 m€ from the FFG was the driver to develop the hybrid modeling toolbox until market readiness.
University of Ljubljana
Modeling and prototyping
Igor Škrjanc is professor of Control Engineering at the faculty of electrical engineering at the University of Ljubljana. His main research areas are adaptive, predictive, neuro-fuzzy and fuzzy adaptive control systems. The first prototype of the software was developed in Igor's lab.
Antleron is an innovative advanced therapy company with the ambition to become the R&D hub for personalized medicine manufacturing solutions. Through co-creative engineering, Antleron fast-tracks pioneering workflows that turn cells into living medicines for all. Antleron and Novasign are collaborating in developing hybrid model solutions for ATMPs. Curently the seamless integration of hybrid models from the toolbox into CFD models is developed for the industry.
Evon GmbH is specialized in process automation. Delivering solutions for home, traffic and industry automation the company is rapidly growing. With a strong MES system applied for different process industries Evon is a powerful partner for a modeling company like Novasign to integrate hybrid models for real-time monitoring and control into the widely applicable XAMControl MES solution
The University of Natural Ressources and Life Science in Vienna (BOKU) is the spin-off partner of Novasign. Embedded in the dedicated Spin-off center of the university Novasign could develop its technology to market readiness.
