Brooks Life Sciences has helped labs proactively plan to secure samples and maintain business continuity in the event of an emergency or natural disasters like hurricanes and flooding. Brooks has the expertise and technology to act quickly and decisively to secure sample assets. Only around half of universities, biobanks, pharmaceutical companies, and other businesses that rely on samples have a crisis plan in place to preserve the samples in case of an emergency. Our readiness assessments evaluate a lab’s current approach to sample storage and how it could be impacted by an emergency. This knowledge empowers more agile planning for crisis management.
