How to donate samples ?

Donating samples to a biobank is voluntary. If you visit the units of Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa (HUS) the hospital personnel can ask your consent to collect your samples and personal data to Helsinki Biobank. You can also receive the information leaflet and consent form by mail, along with the appointment letter to visit the hospital. You can withdraw the consent and prohibit further use of your samples and data at any time.
The Biobank samples can be taken during normal healthcare and medical examinations, in various research projects or primarily for the biobank.
