BBMRI-ERIC Sample and Data Portal

To make biobanks and biomolecular resources findable, BBMRI-ERIC operates a portfolio of tools which allow researchers to discover biobanks and biomolecular resources based on their metadata, including aggregate information about donors, available data and biospecimens.
Building virtual cohorts and checking availability is now possible via Federated IT Infrastructure using privacy-preserving querying of pseudonymised data provided by the source institutions in real-time!

Searching for samples and data for your research? Explore our tools.




“I want to browse all biobanks in BBMRI-ERIC.”

The Directory is a broad catalogue of our biobanks with aggregated information on their collections.

You can browse and filter by country, sample type, quality marks and more.


Go to Directory


“I need tissue and liquid samples fitting to my research scope.”

The Locator is your access to the samples and data associated to the samples based on real-time search on donor and sample level.

“I am interested more in genomics and population data analysis than samples themselves.”

The Finder is a data analysis tool focused on clinical, phenotypic and genomics data.

Apply for approval to do GWAS/PheWAS or for samples of your preference!

Negotiation and access support in BBMRI-ERIC: Requests issued by researchers are becoming increasingly complex and biobanks and biomolecular resources also need to verify availability of the data and biological material for a particular purpose defined by the researcher.

BBMRI-ERIC provides its Negotiator platform to support researchers and biobankers in this complex communication, allowing effective streamlining and monitoring throughout the process.

The website was co-funded within ADOPT BBMRI-ERIC, a project that has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 676550.
