How comprehensive is the BenchSci database?

It's big. And it's only getting bigger!

BenchSci is the world’s largest reagent database with over 29 million reagent products. We cross-reference our database to over 10 million scientific publications from both open- and closed-access publishers. We augment this data with over 3.2 million vendor-supplied figures and 47 thousand figures from third-party validators on BenchSci. This data is regularly updated, so the numbers are always increasing. 

We supplement all this data with BenchSci’s metadata, showing you trends in reagent usage across the published literature.
