About Labster Demo Virtual Lab Simulation

In this demo virtual lab simulation, you will help Dr. One in identifying a fundamental biological molecule. During your mission, you will watch animations and explore lab equipment in the virtual lab.

Navigating through the lab

The virtual lab has lots of advanced equipment for you to explore and experiment with. But before you go and perform ground-breaking science experiments, you will need to learn how to navigate in the lab. In this demo simulation, you will get used to moving your cursor (browser version) or turning your head (VR version) to navigate in the virtual lab.

Dive into molecular animations and see the unseeable

There is a whole new world of things to explore inside our cells, which the naked eye cannot see. In a real lab, it requires much time and effort to capture a moment of molecular interaction inside the cell. But In this demo simulation, you can look into the cell to see life sciences at the molecular level with ease.

Complete your mission and explore the lab further

At the end of this demo, you will share your findings with Dr. One, and then you can continue to explore the virtual lab. Are ready to take a leap into the virtual world?
