Biobanking breast milk and blood

In ConcePTION, we will collect samples of blood and breast milk from breastfeeding women. The collected samples will enable us to study the safety of medicines used during and after pregnancy. The blood and breastmilk samples will be stored in facilities provided by Uppsala Biobank, Sweden  (

Samples will be collected from women in a number of demonstration studies for specific drugs, starting in Sweden. More sites will be added as the project progresses. We are currently setting up structures to collect, analyse and store samples at Uppsala University. If you are interested in donating milk or blood, please follow us on Twitter @IMIConcePTION. (

Addtional information on the biobank will follow soon.
