A Quality by Design Platform to boost the development of

your innovative Products

Quality by Design in 3 minutes

For two years, CYBERnano has got the opportunity

to participate to the European project EXPERT to develop

a new off-the-shelf delivery system for RNA-based nanomedicines

to treat cancer and cardiovascular disease

CYBERnano brings its expertise and platform


to facilitate the implementation of Quality by Design

in this project.

Why easyQBD ?

You are developing an innovative drug, a medical device or an in vitro test. Unfortunately, there is no innovation without risks: risks for the product to be inefficient, risks to be unsafe or not to get the expected quality… All those risks are too often underestimated and too lately, which finally leads to development delays and uncontrolled budget.


Quality by Design is a good development practice (ICH Q8(R2)) that could help you to avoid those adverse effects. Proposed and strongly recommended by international health agencies such as FDA and EMA, QbD is used in all big pharmaceutical industries. Unfortunately, QbD is not “Plug and Play” and requires expertise to be efficiently implemented. To make it accessible to SME and start-ups, CYBERNANO has developed easyQBD: a SaaS platform designed to achieve a triple objective:

  • Facilitate the QbD understanding

  • Speed-up its implementation

  • Estimate risks with more precision


All-in-one service, easyQBD allows you to get the best statistical tools with the best experts to the benefit of your product. It allows you to

  • Speed up the development phase by addressing the critical factors of risk as soon as possible

  • Rapidly optimize performances

  • Better control quality and safety during all the life cycle of the product

  • Get development timeline and costs under control
