An additional 25 already work in subcontracting for Sectra’s facility in Kista. In the new facility, there is space both for production and development of digital mammography systems. Sectra’s investments are based on the radiology detector developed by Associate Professor Mats Danielsson and his colleagues at the Royal Institute of Technology.
