Tissue Bank

The Largest Tissue and Biobank in Scandinavia

Skåne University Hospital in Lund has the largest tissue and biobank in Scandinavia. Established in 1985, over 200 patients annually receive donated tissue from our bank to treat cases ranging from hearing or vision impairment to cardiovascular diseases. Our tissue bank stores samples such as heart valves, corneas, hearing bones, skin, tendons and joints from deceased donors, for the purpose of transplantation and other medical uses.

Skåne University Hospital’s tissue and biobank has extensive experience of international collaborations. In addition to tissue exchange, we also share our experience and knowledge. Our high-end facilities have a sophisticated, tailored software system to track each tissue sample, in accordance with EU regulations, which contributes to the advancement of modern medicine and treatment.
