At BenchSci, our goal is to help fellow scientists achieve biomedical discoveries faster.

That is why we have developed many features on BenchSci to ensure scientists can find, keep track, and share antibodies with ease like never before.

We're excited to introduce each of the features on BenchSci.

Ready? Let's check them out!

1. Figures can be filtered by specific experimental contexts


The capability of identifying published figures by specific immuno-techniques is something that has never been done before, but you can easily do so on BenchSci!

You can also filter experimental contexts such as tissues, species, cell lines to help you identify figures that are most closely related to your experimental interest in seconds.

2. Search results can be viewed as "Products" or "Figures"


Depending on your preference, you may wish to examine figures first then identify the antibody within, or you may wish to examine antibodies first then view associated figures to support its use.

Either way you can apply the context filters mentioned above!

3. "Star" or "Favourite" figures and products


For individual figures that you found interesting, you can track them by "starring". The starred figures will be saved temporarily on the side bar.


You can also "star" individual antibodies.


You can even "star" figures and the antibody used!


The starred figures/antibodies will be stored temporarily on the side bar until you save them.

The saved figures/antibodies will now appear at My Bench (see below)

4. My Bench


My Bench is your personal area where you can organize figures/antibodies by projects or experiments.

You can come back to My Bench anytime to track all the figures and antibodies that you found relevant to your study.

5. Sharing the knowledge


You can email individual figures or antibodies to your colleagues, lab members, or collaborators with a click of a button.


You can also email multiple figures/antibodies from the side bar or My Bench.

That's it! These are the features that are currently on BenchSci.

We are always developing new features so be sure to register a free account and we will notify you of all the exciting new developments!
