Lab/infobox

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

Tips & Tricks

Labs work fairly slow, so it is a good idea to have multiple labs working at the same time. Twenty labs running at once is the community standard, but more can be used. As a secondary strategy, once one's science packs production is automated they should try to get as many labs in a row as they can before the labs consume materials too quickly to be used.

Production

Labs take two inputs: Electricity and Science pack.

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.

(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 it's 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.
