Our diverse range of clinical and discovery bioprocessing services ensure that the highest value of your sample assets is maximized throughout their lifecycle, anywhere in the research and development value-chain. Through strict adherence to globally consistent protocols, established with industry best practices and regulatory mandates, Brooks Life Sciences helps research teams transform samples into renewable resources for future research.
Our highly trained staff is certified to conduct sample preparation and analysis. Brooks offers a full range of services to break down tissue, cell and cell-free samples into precise matrix components like plasma, serum, PMBC, DNA, and RNA. Our fully automated nucleic acid extraction services include isolating total RNA from liquid biopsies and isolating cell-free DNA from fractionated blood samples. Our platforms reduce processing time and improve consistency by eliminating manual steps. We also maintain sample integrity through automated liquid handling with integrated barcode scanning systems.
Often, Brooks aliquots samples for customers before shipping, reducing risk and expenses at once with fewer vendor relationships and sample movements in the supply chain. Brooks can easily verify the viability of any DNA sample, and provide an annotated sample/aliquot audit trail of purity, yield, and concentration. These services empower our customers to focus on their research goals, while our team of experts protect sample integrity and consistency.
