Store samples in the Danish National Biobank

The Danish National Biobank offers storage at -20°C, -80°C and in liquid nitrogen tanks

Sample types such as serum, plasma, buffy coat, whole blood and DNA can be stored in our automated freezing units allowing for easy overview and access.

In this video we present how samples are handled and stored in the Danish National Biobank. We receive approximately 2000 biological samples every day. These are handled by our robots, some are analysed on the COBAS robot, others are transferred to small tubes and stored in our -80 degrees automated storage unit.
