The Neonatal Screenings Biobank (DNSB) is a biobank run by Statens Serum Institute, which holds blood samples from practically all babies born since 1982. All new born infants in Denmark are examined for a range of serious diseases by analysing a blood sample dried on special filter paper (PKU blood test).

The aim of the PKU test is mainly to screen an infant for a range of serious diseases but it is also used in investigations if the child develops a disease in later life, or for scientific research. 

Parents will need to register the child with the Danish Health Data Authority's Tissue Utilisation Register If they do not wish the sample to be used for subsequent scientific research.
