The GGBN Data Portal provides an easy way to explore and request samples worldwide. In order to do so you need to login/request an account. The account will be validated manually.

Adding samples to basket through result hitlist

  • Above the results you'll see the note to login/request account

    Basket and checkout

  • Example request basket for samples requested from two different institutions. In case it is listed under CITED you'll see a note in red
  • When checking out you'll see the samples grouped by the holding GGBN member institution. For each institution you can add a note

Click on "Request now" and the email will be forwarded to the sample holding institutions. You will receive a confirmation email.

  • Note that the samples are owned by the sample holding member institutions, hence this request is not binding. They will contact you shortly to provide you with any futher information such as MTA signature, special loan conditions or fees
  • In case you are requesting samples from multiple institutions they will ONLY receive the request for their own samples!
