OverviewSuggest Edit

Labster is a next-generation laboratory simulator accessible through an interactive platform, where students engage with life science, biology and biotechnology experiments. Designed with 3D animations and packed with educational science background information, Labster's browser- and tablet-based wet lab is the heart of its business. Labster simulates a fully equipped laboratory that students are rarely able to access in real life. The Company gives students the possibility to work with virtual, realistic lab experiments which would otherwise be too expensive, time-consuming or unsafe to perform in a school wet lab. Simultaneously, schools can cut costs on wet labs, while increasing student learning and grade performance.
