Offspring Biosciences Launches New website

1st October 2021

Designed and constructed by our internal teams we are very proud to promote the new Offspring Biosciences website to showcase the full range of molecular pathology based research services that we provide to our Pharma and Biotech clients

Visit to review our complete services portfolio.  We are offering support for demonstrating target engagement of both small molecule and biopharmaceutical drugs in more disease-relevant settings.  Through our shared experience of working on multiple projects across a variety of disease indications including (but not limited to) neuroscience, oncology & immuno-oncology, and auto-immune disorders, we are helping our clients to understand the correlation between drug target and disease processes, to demonstrate how early target validation is critical to the modulation of target activity, and to show efficacy in preclinical disease models.  Utilizing our skills and knowledge across many methodologies for tissue-based analyses, such as proximity ligation assays, Nanostring multiplexing studies of RNA/miRNA/DNA, custom and off-the-shelf IHC multiplex assays and AI-assisted quantitative image analysis, Offspring Biosciences provide advanced histopathology-based analyses of distribution and regulation of biomarkers in normal and diseased human and animal tissues

Biovation Park the research park that provides the basis for tomorrow's export revenues

October 2015

Offspring Biosciences was formed by four people (from left in the picture Anna Svensson, Mia Nilsson, Dan Sunnemark and Anders Dahlstrand) who worked with histopathological services within AstraZeneca. Not only in Sweden there is a great shortage of pathologists and the company today has customers around the world who demand their services

1,400 people lost their jobs when AstraZeneca closed its research in Södertälje. But quite quickly, new ideas and new companies began to sprout in the Biovation Park that took over premises, laboratories, instruments and a number of drug candidates. With a stronger and long-term commitment to strengthened production-oriented research from the government and parliament, Sweden's positions as Life Science Nation can be further advanced


Flying start for research-oriented service company

May 2014

Founders Dan Sunnemark, Anne Svensson and Anders Dahlstrand had previously delivered the same type of services internally within AstraZeneca and therefore knew what kind of equipment they wanted to work with when the group would continue to deliver under their own research company Offspring Biosciences
