If you're looking for recipes, try Chemicals.
One of the most active sections of the Research Department, Chemistry is where chemists and other scientists create experimental, medical and utility chemicals and substances for the station.
I have found myself in Chemistry. So... what do I do here?[edit | edit source]
Hey, that's a really good question!
Stationary Equipment[edit | edit source]
|This is how you get the goods. Insert a beaker or other container and spurt out some hydrogen and radium.
|Isolate and remove chemicals from a beaker, and change the contents into solid pills (or bottles of pills), bottles of fluid, and some other stuff.
|If you have an object with reagents in it that you'd like to do some science on, like a plant or some food, you can pop this in here, analyze it, and extract it.
There are internal tanks with high capacities, but you cannot interact with these directly- you will need to transfer it to any container you insert. Be aware! The extraction process destroys the item!
|Some chemical reactions take place at or beyond a certain temperature threshold. This object will heat or cool a container you insert to whatever temperature you set.
Handheld Equipment[edit | edit source]
|The fundamental object of chemistry, most of what you mix up will take place in one of these.
Holds 50 units of fluid, is see-through, has graduated markings so you'll know exactly how much of whatever is inside, is inside.
|Small pipette deal that holds 5 units max, and transfers 5 units, from open containers. If it's empty, you will draw from whatever you click. If it's full, you will transfer to what you click.
There's a mechanical version too, which allows you to click on it to bring up an interface for choosing how much you want to transfer.
|For checking the reagents contained within objects, perfect for determining the results of your experiments, finding something good to extract reagents from, or making sure the chef's food is safe to eat.
Also great for medical purposes, since the best start for treating poisons is knowing exactly what poison you need to treat.
|Spectroscopic Scanner Goggles
|You know the reagent scanner? It's like that, but you wear it on your face. Examine a reagent container with these on and you will get a detailed readout of its contents.
However, this only works on very obvious chemical containers, like beakers and syringes, not for solid objects like burgers and crew members.
