The figures can then be filtered by specific experimental contexts cited in the paper such as techniques, tissue, cell lines, and more, to help users pinpoint antibodies that have been published under experimental conditions matching their study interest. BenchSci is freely accessible to all scientists with a wvu.edu or affiliated emails at https://www.benchsci.com
