Tool Overview

The Biospecimen Research Database (BRD) is a free and publicly accessible database that contains peer-reviewed literature pertinent to the field of human biospecimen science. The database is updated periodically with both recent and historical publications and may serve as a vehicle for literature review, evaluation of "in use" biospecimen handling protocols, development of new protocols, and identification of analytes that are susceptible or impervious to handling variability.
