quibim

QUIBIM SL, a biotechnology company specializing in advanced analysis of medical images, announced in December 2016 the closure of the first round of funding, with a total of 550,000 Euros. Funding came from BioInfoGate, as well as Tech Transfer UPV, AYCE Capital, and the company’s founders. QUIBIM, a spin-off of the Institute of Health Research La Fe, was founded in 2012 by Angel Alberich-Bayarri and Dr. Luis Martí Bonmatí following a long history of research and development. The startup has developed a platform for cloud-based medical image analysis, which can also be privately installed for hospitals and pharmaceutical companies developing clinical trials. Using X-ray images, echography, CT, MRI or PET scans, QUIBIM employs advanced analysis algorithms including GPU-based (graphics processing unit) processing, and big data and machine learning methodologies. QUIBIM’s software allows greater information for diagnoses and the early evaluation of response to pharmacological treatments.
