The BBMRI-NL Catalogue is a searchable database, containing information on several Dutch bio- and databanks. Researchers can use the catalogue to search collections on specific disease types, Genome Wide Association Study (GWAS) data, types of biomaterials, and many other variables. Furthermore, the contact details for each biobank coordinator and information about conditions for the request and use of the data and materials are available.
The catalogue is also the source for the Dutch biobank collections in the BBMRI-ERIC biobank directory.

A search in the BBMRI-NL Catalogue can be performed in two ways:
For a growing number of collections you can request access to their material through the BBMRI-NL Podium Request Portal, which is linked to the catalogue.
