Xbrane Biopharma AB (83%) (Nordnet) specializes in biosimilars where they try to replicate existing biologics on the market.

Diagonal Bio AB (79%) (Nordnet) is developing a platform called Panviral to detect and diagnose small sections of pathogen genomes, such as viruses, bacteria, and fungi. In addition to the main business, service, and associated ancillary services are also offered. Last week the company signed a distribution agreement with Techtum Lab AB regarding the rights to distribute Diagonal Bio’s analytical instrument, LAMPlify®, in Sweden until May 30, 2025, with an option for a 12-month renewal. 

Xspray Pharma AB (36%) (Nordnet) has several product candidates in the clinical development phase and plans to launch its first product on the US market during September 2024. Based on a patented technology for the amorphous formulation of drugs, the company develops product candidates with relevant medical benefits that should be able to be marketed as improved versions of established drugs for the treatment of cancer
