How can I filter down my results?

There are 15 different filters on BenchSci that you can use to define your experimental context and narrow down the results accordingly.

The following video will explain each of our filters and show you how to apply them effectively to narrow down the results to the most relevant data.


FIGURE USAGE DATA filters narrow down the results based on how an antibody was used across the published literature

Technique Used: Technique that was used in the experiment in the published literature. When there are no published figures, vendor recommended techniques will be detected.

Organism Tested: Organism in which the experiment was conducted.

Tissue Used: Tissue that was used in the experiment (ie: liver...).

Cell Type Used: Cell type that was used in the experiment (ie: neuron...).

Cell Line Used: Cell line that was used in the experiment (ie: HeLa...).

Disease: Disease context of the sample that was used in the experiment (ie: breast cancer...).

PRODUCT SPECS filters narrow down the results based on product information that is provided by the vendor

Availability: The availability of the antibody for purchase.

Company: The vendor that sells the antibody. You can include preferred vendors, or exclude vendors you'd prefer not to purchase from.

Host: The species that the antibody was raised in.

Reactivity: The specie(s) of the target protein that the antibody will bind to, determined by vendor recommendations.

Clonality: Clonality of the antibody (ie: monoclonal, polyclonal...).

Clone ID: The identification number (also called clone number) for the hybridoma cell line that produces a single type of antibody.

PTM: Post-translational modification (PTM) of the protein target (ie: phospho, methyl, acetyl...). Specific residues in this filter indicate the site of the modification (ie: Lysine 27).

Conjugation: Conjugation of the antibody to the indicated reporter or tag (ie: biotin).

Specificity: Vendor indicated specificity of the antibody for a region of the protein (ie: N-terminus....).

Kits: Kits that contain an antibody component (ie: ELISA kit...).
