Overview

Brooks knows our service can only be the best in the industry if our people are trained, certified, and fully understand the definition of quality. The security and integrity of your research samples are the standard by which we judge ourselves. To ensure we’re doing all we can, we conduct quarterly internal audits of each of our global biorepositories in the United States, Germany, Singapore, and China. We also enlist independent auditors to evaluate our practices. This ensures our operating procedures are practically fail-proof, though we never take that fact for granted. Whether we’re using a mobile biorepository to transport a lab or storing your samples until they’re needed, our customers’ success and satisfaction is ours.
