The thermal consequences of the Brinkman type micropolar nanoparticles are inspected theoretically in presence of microorganisms. The impact of non-uniform heat source and sink is also observed. The thermo-diffusion aspects of nano-materials are visualized for heat and mass transfer phenomenon. The appropriate transformations successfully convert the flow problem into dimensionless form. The shooting numerical computations are performed to access the solution. The accuracy of numerical data is predicted via making comparison with already performed continuations. The graphical significances for the desired parameters is addressed with aims for graphs and tables. The findings are summarized with practical applications. The novel outcomes show that velocity of fluid reduces with inclination factor and Brinkman parameter. The nanofluid temperature is enhanced with non-uniform heat source sink parameters and Brinkman parameter. The nanofluid concentration reduces with viscosity constraint. The obtained results presents applications in the era of thermal engineering, energy production, cooling and heat systems, enzymes etc.
