Services available through Fingenious
Fingenious offer four main direct services:
- 1. Feasibility requests from biobank samples and data
- 2. Access requests for biobank samples and data
- 3. Direct communication with biobank research specialists
- 4. Feasibility reports and access decisions uploaded
When you submit your feasibility or access request through Fingenious, your request will be distributed by FINBB to all six regional hospital biobanks – unless you specify which biobanks your request is aimed at. A biobank research specialist at either FINBB or a regional biobank will contact you within 2-3 working days of your request.
We aim to submit a feasibility report to you within 2-3 weeks of your request. The report includes the numbers of requested samples across the regional hospital biobanks and the availability of the requested data.
Feasibility and access costs
Our initial feasibility service is free of charge. When we review your feasibility request, we will contact you to give a cost estimate for the feasibility report if compiling the feasibility report requires exceptional effort and a significant amount of time.
Submitting access requests through Fingenious is also free of charge. You will receive a cost estimation of your biobank project during the feasibility and access request process.
