Fingenious – Finnish biobanks nationwide catalogue service launched

A Biobank Cooperative Finland’s (FINBB) Fingenious service allows researchers to reach all public biobanks in Finland with one feasibility request. The service is a free online catalogue tool that covers all public biobanks in Finland. It allows researchers to perform a quick sample and data query by browsing biobank collections, which makes Fingenious a digital gateway to Finnish biobanks and biomedical research.

Registering with this service is the first step to conducting a biobank study with samples and/or data in Finland.

Fingenious connects you to:

  • Auria Biobank
  • Biobank Borealis
  • Biobank of Central Finland
  • Biobank of Eastern Finland
  • Finnish Clinical Biobank Tampere
  • Helsinki Biobank

Services available through Fingenious:

  • Aggregate level sample availability search in Fingenious Catalogue
  • Feasibility requests from biobank samples and data
  • Access requests for biobank samples and data

The initial feasibility service is free of charge. You will receive a cost estimation of your biobank project during the feasibility and access request process.
