Research & Development
This lab houses the development of hi-tech devices including weapons, batteries, drills, and circuit boards.
Items around the station such as the hand teleporter, stun batons and analyzers can be collected used to improve research tech levels.
For a more in-depth guide, see the Guide to Research and Development.
Toxins Mixing is where you spawn.
This lab focuses on exploring the possibilities of phoron gas, typically in the form of massive explosions. Also provided to you is the toxins mixing chamber (AKA Bomb Range). Hopefully, this is where you will be testing your bombs.
Bomb making is not all that easy though, as the Toxins Research Lab is really prone to outbursts of phoron, fire, phoron that's on fire, or even phoron that's on fire and spreading N2O. Yep, it ain't easy being a scientist.
For more information, refer to the Guide to Toxins.
Xenoarcheology and Anomaly study
You can get here from the research shuttle.
This whole place is focused on finding and excavating artifacts from the asteroid, and if you're really lucky: To experiment on large anomalous artifacts you may find while out on a dig. Worse comes to worse, you can also play the role of a second-hand shaft miner, but you still need at least a Quartermaster on staff.
For more information, refer to the Guide to Xenoarchaeology
This laboratory specializes in the the study of alien lifeforms, such as slimes.
Careful handling and caution if this lab is advised as it is common for untrained personnel to inadvertently release the specimen. It is important to make sure your flock is fed, and any extra unneeded slimes culled to keep them from getting out of hand, it's also important to make sure adult slimes are fed enough to split, or they'll make a mess of their pens... Or you! Experiment on all sorts of fancy cores.

- Unless you're a traitor, don't use the bombs on the main station. You'll get banned otherwise.
- Always warn the station before your detonate a bomb. Your resident tajarans will be less likely to claw off your face and more likely to help you fix the inevitable damage to Toxins if you do.
- Change the frequency of the remote signalling devices so that other scientists or saboteurs don't set off your explosives themselves.
- You can open your PDA, minimize the new window, and leave your PDA in your pocket so that you can set off your bombs as long as you don't need to change the frequency. Whenever it's time for an explosion you just open the window you minimized, click send signal, and it'll do it!
- Always make sure you have at least one grey slime core on hand in-case of a sudden and unexpected loss of slime life.
It's possible to make bombs that utterly destroy a small area, gib only those people next to you, explode when you die, bring general ruin to entire wings of the station, and more! It is recommended that you use your traitor points on things to conceal your identity, or get a space suit for those 'accidents'. Protolathed objects and slime cores can make for interesting weapons as well.
Moreover, your access to signalers unleashes a whole new world of possibility, remotely triggering weird behavior in electronic equipment, putting anyone off your track. Cameras, airlocks , protolathes, air alarms, mulebots; you name it!
Xenoarcheology is also a great source for weaponry, nothing says awesome like wielding a katana and going on a killing spree, if you're lucky, you may even find a loaded alien gun!
