Bank of million patient samples is getting bigger. More than a million tissue samples and tens of thousands of blood samples are stored in Auria, the first hospital biobank in Finland.
The sample collections of Auria Biobank, which operates in connection with the Turku University Hospital and the University of Turku, are physically located in hospitals in southwest and west Finland. Samples are collected and combined with the necessary metadata, indicating the clinical information on the sample donor, quantity, date and how the sample has been processed. The samples of Auria Biobank include tissue, blood and DNA isolated from cells.
