Denmark's National Biobank (DNB) contains more than 24 million biological samples - such as serum, plasma, buffy coat, fuldblod og DNA. The purpose of DNB is to enhance Danish research infrastructure and thus opportunities for Danish health research and international research collaboration.

DNB has been created in collaboration between the public and private sector with the Novo Nordisk Foundation, the Ministry of Research, Innovation and Higher Education, as well as the Lundbeck Foundation as sponsors. The National Biobank Register is open to all and free to use.

The register is routinely updated with data on available samples in a collaboration between major Danish biobanks at hospitals, universities and other research institutions. This data is linked to data on individuals from the CPR register (CPR), the National Patient Register (LPR) and the Pathology Register (LRP).

The Danish legislation require that all health-related research projects that comprise human biological material have obtained such approval. Furthermore, the project must be approved by the Danish Data Protection Agency.

When reporting to The National Committee on Health Research Ethics a list of demands is present. An online application form must be filled out, including a full project description. The Project description should include details on the planned analysis, time schedule, funding etc.

When a project is approved, the application for data is handled via the joint Danish port of access to biological material and data under the Danish Health Data Authority, Scientific Services (Danish: Forskerservice). Afterwards, all applications are processed by the Scientific Board of the Danish National.

Application process

  • Report the project to The National Committee on Health Research Ethics
  • Receive approval
