Learn about the microorganisms that are all around and inside us in our microbiology simulations. Study the living organisms that are too small to be seen with the naked eye, explore how to handle them in the laboratory, and discover how they play an important role in the causes and control of diseases.
"Labster is cost effective, it’s easy to use, and you have a better outcome. It’s great when your students tell their friends, ‘hey, you should take this course.”
Cord Carter, Chemistry Lecturer
Fisk university, TN
“I don’t think there’s anyone who has the same expertise in-house that Labster has. I haven’t seen anyone else working in the field have this level.”
Dr. Philippos Savvides
Arizona State University
“Labster allows a dynamic visualization of chemical reactions so that students can practice and better understand these concepts.”
Dr. Sabine Matallana-Surget

Join Dr. One and two colleagues on their mission to cure cancer. They are using Western blot to compare the level of p53 protein in cancerous and healthy control cells. Can you help Dr. One with the tricky membrane transfer step?
Enter the virtual microscope room to see inside a tissue sample. Learn how a fluorescence microscope can create a high contrast image and answer biological questions.
Help a scientist detect and quantify proteins by using one of the most popular techniques in molecular biology.
Help a microbiologist prepare a pure culture that can be used to identify a microbe causing an infection! Use good aseptic technique to avoid contamination of the sample, ensure your own safety, and avoid surprise fires in the lab.
Visit a research station in Antarctica and help the researcher Nicolas explore bacteria in melting water. Uncover the features that are necessary for bacterial survival and compare these to other bacteria living elsewhere.
Introduction to containment level 3 (Biosafety level 3, BSL3) research laboratory, a hypothetical approach to identifying a potential bioterrorism agent that is classed as a hazard group three microorganism.
A dental patient’s recurrent infection is becoming dangerously septic. Your task is to investigate the cause using diffusion disc assays and prevent further cases by exploring sterilization, decontamination & selectively toxic infection control methods.
Prevent Dr. One from wiping out humanity! Complete a number of learning games to understand the three ways of genetic transfer in bacteria, transduction, transformation, and conjugation, and use your learnings to prevent the rise of superbugs.
Have you ever wondered how the bacteria cell actually gets stained during Gram staining procedure? Discover how the cell retains a certain color during the experiment and to differentiate it under the microscope!
Visit the exoplanet Astakos IV, where the Kuppelfang population is suffering from a bacterial infection. Use staining, differential media and biochemical tests to identify the bacteria so that the Kuppelfangs can be treated before they go extinct.
Global health is everyone’s responsibility. Become a pathogen and invade a body to discover how immune cells and organs provide protection. Learn how researchers from across the planet work together to save the world from pathogenic infections.
Micropipettes are the extended arm of every biochemist. In this simulation, you will learn the art of pipetting in a hands-on experiment, as you try to determine the protein content of a corn cob. Will you be able to help LabsterFood Inc. create a breed of corn that contains enough essential amino acids to fulfil a person’s daily requirements? After playing this simulation, you’ll be ready to show off your pipetting skills when you enter the lab for the first time.
Learn how to handle micropipettes, which are one of the most important pieces of laboratory equipment. Get ready to show off your pipetting skills for those technical microscale experiments when you enter the lab for the first time.
Join doctors in revealing a pathogen that is causing a patient to be critically ill. Perform the Gram stain on a sample collected from the patient and use microscopy to identify the presence of bacteria to help guide the proper antibiotic treatment.
Virtual Labs are interactive science simulations that accelerate STEM learning through gamification. Educators assign labs to students through their internet browsers, where students can train lab skills, visualize abstract theory, and learn science through real-world scenarios.
