IBS AG developed and distributed industrial productivity management software, including LIMS software.
In February 2012, Siemens AG made a second attempt at taking over IBS AG, the first attempt five years before. Siemens announced in April that it had acquired 80.69 percent of IBS shares and therefore reached the 75 percent threshold for the takeover, including IBS subsidiary IBS America. Siemens finalized the acquisition sometime in 2014.
Sometime after late May, Siemens transferred the IBS AG web content to the Siemens website. The former product CAQ=QSYS LIMS QPM doesn't appear to be part of the transition to Siemens and is presumed to no longer be offered.
