These trained lab scientists get the fun job of analyzing their little Lego DNA.
Here they have a PCR Thermal Cycler (yes, I actually know what some of these machines are supposed to be) It copies DNA sequences.
This high-powered microscope helps the scientists scrutinize individual cells.

Chemicals and fire! That guy must be having fun!
Bonus fact: Scientists have traced all human DNA back to one man and one woman.
Here’s the DNA sequencer which can read single DNA units.

On a side note, this whole project started with me fiddling around with trying to find a creative use for the space gun/nozzle pieces that make up the DNA sculpture sides. While I was trying out different ideas with them, my mom commented that they reminded her of DNA. After that came the sculpture, the lab equipment, the lab…
In the corner is the centrifuge (currently being maintenced)which spins substances around until they separate. Kinda (but not quite) like how those carnival rides can spin people around until their lunch separates from them.
And, of course, a security guard making sure everyone's alright.
Love the Lego Science Lab! I'm in the process of having an event in December and would love to commission you to build this Lego lab or a newer version that I would showcase at this science event, are you available or interested in this opportunity?

make sour jello that is what i'm eating right now Haha!
Nice work on the lab all around. Took me a bit to figure out what piece you were using for the DNA thing, but once I did I was very impressed. Wouldn't have thought such a construction would be that stable. Instead of the gray cylinders, using four different colors to represent the four nucleotides would have been awesome.
