Capabilities

Brooks is your partner in nurturing life-changing work.

We work with research foundations to collect, store, protect and share biospecimens and data with leading investigators. Many samples relevant to your health-related cause gain value over time, revealing more with each successive research project. Brooks has the people, processes and advanced technology to manage large, richly-annotated cohort collections.

Our innovative products and services are designed to help you maximize research opportunities, minimizes risk and to achieve the highest quality of research and protection of sample integrity at every research stage.
