Labs are buildings that perform research by consuming science packs. Use of a lab is required to progress in Factorio.

Production

Labs take two inputs: Electricity and Science pack.

As of 0.15, there are seven Science packs:

Labs output: Research progress.

Each force can research one science at a time, but can use many labs for faster results. The speed bonus of labs when Lab research speed is researched and modules are present can be calculatd using this formula: research_bonus * module_bonus = speed_bonus; the percentage bonuses have to be converted to decimals (e.g. +140% = 2.4) before the formula is used.

(For 0.14 there are four Science packs, Science pack 1, Science pack 2, Science pack 3 and Alien science pack)

History

  • 0.12.6:
    • The research speed of a lab is now not dependent on its electricity consumption, and can be scripted.
  • 0.12.0:
    • Lab research is now continuous; Science packs now have progress bars.
  • 0.9.2:
    • Labs are now named after early access backers when built from blueprint.
  • 0.7.2:
    • Changed the recipe of Lab to require 4 transport belts, down from 5.
  • 0.2.7:
    • Contents of the Lab is now shown in the entity info.
