Access more than 22 million biological samples in the Danish Biobank Register

Through a national collaboration, large Danish biobanks, at hospitals, universities and other research institutions, regularly submit information about their biological samples to the Danish Biobank Register. Data from the biobanks are linked to register information, so biological samples can be cross-referenced to diseases, operations, demographic information and much more. Samples can be taken at time of diagnosis, but also years before, enabling early biomarkers to be identified. Aggregated results about the available biological material is displayed to researchers around the world through a web-based search system, that so far contains information about 22 million biological samples from 5.4 million Danes.

Automatic Biobank 2
Automatic biobank for blood samples

To store blood samples safely and for an extended period of time, you need temperatures as low as minus 80 degrees. But that makes it difficult for hospital staff to sort the blood samples, since it is not possible to work in such low temperatures for more than 15 minutes. RoboTool, Frigortek Cooling Systems and Vejle Hospital have together created a solution to the problem: An automatic biobank which is a large freezer facility that can store blood samples at temperatures down to minus 80 degrees, supplemented with a robot solution to carry the blood samples from the ante-room into the biobank and sort them at the same time. The anteroom is only minus 5 degrees and hereby a better place for the staff to work. The solution makes it possible to save many man-hours for moving samples in and out the smaller freezers currently used at hospitals. The biobank also automatically monitors stock and traceability and it is fitted with an alarm system and maximum backup. A business case estimates that over a period of 30 years the hospital can reduce the costs of storage and handling of samples from 12.6 million to 3.6 million Euro.
