Bio- and Genome Bank Denmark

A biobank is a collection of biological material (e.g. blood and tissue) that is stored according to applicable law. 

In Denmark, we have the best opportunities to increase health through the use of health data in science and treatment. We can target treatment and prevent many illnesses for the future generations using health data. This is due to our unique registers, data and bio banks combined with the organization of our health care system. The regions wish to support this work by making one point of entry to the biobanks in Denmark.
