The real estate company Vectura has recently signed a leasing agreement with the Swedish biomedical company Atlas Antibodies. The agreement applies to 1 700 sqm. office- and lab environment in Forskaren in Stockholm’s new life science district Hagastaden, where Atlas Antibodies will establish their new head office.

The Swedish company Atlas Antibodies provides innovative and high-quality solutions to researchers around the world based on its expertise and unique heritage.

Atlas Antibodies’ new head office of 1 700 sqm in Forskaren will include both office space and laboratories.
In the heart of Hagastaden, Forskaren creates a unique venue for business, academia, and research. At the entrance of Forskaren, the public gets invited to Urban Deli and The National Museum of Science and Technology’s new establishments. Forskaren will become the new destination for ideas and knowledge exchange with the other life science tenants in the building.

Atlas Antibodies will provide yet another life science business that fulfills our vision with the building; to save lives. We're confident that their presence in the building will continue to strengthen Forskaren as a venue and a collaboration arena, with the other tenants, says Micael Averborg, Head of Business Development at Vectura.
- For Atlas Antibodies the move into a new headquarter is a significant step in our progressive growth strategy. At Forskaren we can benefit from new state-of-the-art facilities and a stimulating scientific environment – just as we will contribute to making Forskaren a vibrant and progressive hub for commercial biotech and health science, says Group CEO Nille Klæbel of Atlas Antibodies.
