About the Danish National Biobank

Over the years the Danish society has invested considerable sums in building a range of national registers containing information about all residents in Denmark. In the same way the Danish health system has routinely collected biological material from a large number of individuals.

The main purpose of the Danish National Biobank is to give scientists from Denmark and abroad overview of and access to more than 24 million biological samples in both existing and future collections.

The Danish National Biobank covers 3,225 m2 for storage, easy retrieval and optimum utilisation of biological samples

Scientists have the possibility to link information about biological samples in Danish biobanks with the large amount of information contained in the Danish administrative registers. The Danish National Biobank is still expanding and will become one of the world’s largest biobanks and a unique resource that will take Danish biomedical research another step forward.

 

The Danish National Biobank initiative has 3 pillars:

 

 - The Danish Biobank Register with detailed information about the samples available in the Danish health system and in the large, participating research biobanks.

 - The physical National Biobank that stores and retrieves samples for Danish scientists.

 - The Coordinating Centre where a strong research environment offers know-how to  scientists and external biobanks.
