Biobank Samples & Data Directory

Biobank Samples Data DirectoryAre you looking for samples and clinical data for your biomedical research? The BBMRI-ERIC Directory makes it easy, with a catalogue of samples and data from nearly 700 biobanks across Europe – and, since 2020, those with samples and data related to COVID-19 from around the world.

Once you’ve found your samples, send inquiries to multiple biobanks using our Negotiator tool. The Negotiator provides an easy overview of the status of your requests and allows tracking of follow-up steps and cost negotiation.
