Labster’s Virtual Labs Empower Scientists, Educators and Their Stem Students
Nothing beats hands on experience in a wet lab for scientists, researchers and students. However wet labs can be cost prohibitive. Also, in a lot of cases lab preparation can take more time than actual experiments, testing and screening. Some scientists and students find that as they dive deeper and deeper into their work, almost always, there’s some important tool missing, again going back to cost and timing.
For the teacher and the professor wet labs are also great tools, however it can be hard to assess 30, 40 even 100 students at a time working on an experiment or a research project because when the teacher is with one student on one side of the room, the experiment may be at a different stage, on the other side of the room.
Surely there’s technology that can bring this all together. Well there is and it’s from Labster.
Labster has created virtual lab environments that are being used by top universities, research institutes and labs across the world for educating, teaching and refreshing lab skills. The laboratory simulators empower, scientists, researchers, educators and students in ways that couldn’t be done just a few short years ago.
Technology allows their simulation environments to captivate students with relatable scenarios and 3D animations which make it possible to visualize life science down to the molecular level. The company offers hundreds of topics available in over 60 different simulations ranging from wastewater treatment to acids and bases and everything in between. Labster gives science students unparalleled access to a wet lab learning environment in a fraction of the time and cost.
The Labster simulation environment simulates everything you would actually do in a wet lab. Prior to writing this story we ran through the first simulation which is all about lab safety. Labster asks questions throughout the simulations to make sure students are grasping the concepts.
Labster is safer, and quicker than an actual wet lab with the ability to learn a lot more and dive into other lab simulations students might not have in an actual lab environment. The company is constantly adding more simulations to their library.
