This data on BenchSci can help bolster your confidence in selecting products of interest. Scientists may want to see any validation experiments that are available, even if they are not associated with a peer-reviewed publication. 

Here is a list of open-access resources that are included in our database that show independent validation experiments for select antibody products and experimental applications, in order of most to least figures:
