Sample donor´s rights

You can ask Helsinki Biobank about the following

• are we storing your samples and data,
• on what grounds are these samples and data being stored (consent or notification procedure in the case of old samples),
• where did we get your data,
• for what biobank research have we handed over your samples and data,
• information on your health generated during biobank research. In many cases biobank research results need to be verified before they can be given to you. You can ask for an explanation of what the results mean, but we may then have to charge you for the verification and analysis of your data.
