About this creation

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.







Cooler/ A big fridge with a glass door



A technician at work.








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.







And with the front open









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.












"All fixed. Boy, am I thirsty, though!"



"Mmmmmm...Mello Yellow!"






"Ahhhh"



*glug*glug*glug*



"HEY! Where's my sulfure trioxide!"

(Joke inspired by a Far Side comic)

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?

Hello Love the Lego Science Lab! I would love to showcase a lego lab like this at an event I'm arranging in December. Could I commission you to build this lab or even a new version for this event, please confirm as I love your work. Cheers, Chris

Neat technique on that double helix. The lab as a whole is well-built as well, and the binoculars make for good microscopes, I see.

Quoting Ali Cooper-Williams Is the DNA Strand for sale if so I'll pay $25! Ali
I wasn't planning on selling it; and if you really want it you could just build it yourself using the photos as a guide; it's not a complex build.

Yes indeed, science is cool, and so is humor. You have payed some nice homage to both here. Hip, hip, hurrah!

Excellent work, the DNA sculpture technique came out great. Nannan did a DNA sculpture using trans colored pieces and a different technique for a similar effect; check it out if you haven't.~H

Very nice, science is cool, I don't know much about DNA though, the typical sight of a clean lab, great job

I'm sure the scientists in "GATTACA" would have been proud. Nice lab structure. I like the equipment.

I love the 'DNA Strand'... took me just about forever to figure out what parts you used. Clever work!

Quoting Shannon Young Instead of the gray cylinders, using four different colors to represent the four nucleotides would have been awesome.
That would indeed have looked cool! Unfortunately, I don't have enough of the colored cylinders to do that.

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.

Oh wow. That DNA thing is really nice.
