Samples & Information for Study

Sanford BioBank

By providing scientists with direct access to the Sanford BioBank, we are accelerating research and potential discoveries. Our scientists don’t have to wait to receive biological samples, enabling them to begin their important work sooner.

Your genetic sample could help you and your loved ones because it is saved for future genetic testing. We collect and store samples from any patient age 18 and older, allowing our physicians to adopt and practice precision, predictive medicine. No other biobank incorporates this clinical application.
