Our specialized team of professional Science Illustrators work with scientists around the world to regularly review and update our icon library, using the most recent literature. 

We create and update icons based on our unique custom icon request service. In general, the process looks a little something like this:

  1. A BioRender user fills out a custom icon request form with instructions and references. 
  2. Our team of science illustrators receives the request and hits the books! For a single icon, we’ll review and summarize up to 20 reference texts and images into a simple icon. 
  3. Once the icon is approved, it’s uploaded to our public gallery for you to use. 

While we regularly review our icon library for accuracy, we also encourage feedback from our community. Just like with research, we follow a peer-review system to ensure the accuracy of our icons.

Notice an error with any of our icons? Let our Creative Team know by sending an email to [email protected]. We fix all errors as quickly as possible and are grateful for your support.
