Step 1: Preliminary inquiry of samples and data

​You may inquire if Helsinki Biobank is able to provide you with the samples and associated data you need by filling in the “preliminary inquiry form” on this page  and submitting it to biobank.inquiries(at) The biobank’s personnel will then check the availability of the requested samples and data and provide you with a formal statement of availability. This statement is needed in step 2, if you wish to continue the process.

The preliminary inquiry takes one to four weeks to complete, depending on the complexity of the inquiry, and is free of charge.
