About the Danish National Biobank

The Danish National Biobank provides scientists from Denmark and abroad easy access to more than 25 million biological samples

The epidemiologist's dream: Denmark

Over the years the Danish society has invested in establishing a range of national registers containing information about all residents in Denmark. Similarly, the Danish health system has routinely collected biological material from a large number of individuals. 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 has 3 pillars:

  • The Danish Biobank Register with detailed information about the samples available in the Danish health system and in the large research biobanks participating.
  • The biobank itself, where samples are stored and retrieved.
  • The Coordinating Centre, a strong administrative environment offering know-how to scientists and external biobanks.
