Foreword

Please note that this list does not cover every single chem; there are some compounds that can only be found through trial and error. These are secret chems with recipes not held in the source code.

Chemistry Equipment

Chemical Dispenser

Dispenser.png
The Chemical Dispenser is your go-to device for making everything. It's a reagent dispenser, and works the same way as all other dispensers - You put a container into it, in this case a Beaker of some sort, by holding the container in your hand and clicking the dispenser. Then once a container is in, click the dispenser with an empty hand to bring up the menu

The Chemical dispenser can dispense all kinds of elements and chemicals into the beaker. And when you put in the right ingredients for a recipe, they'll automatically react in the beaker and create the result. Some of the things in the dispenser even have effects on their own, without being made into compounds. For a full list of all the things that the dispenser can output, check the Dispenser section

ChemMaster 3000

Chemmaster.gif
The ChemMaster 3000 is your tool for turning your beakerfuls of medicine, into a useable state, without having to give away your lab equipment. It's also used for analysing the contents of beakers, and for carefully removing parts you want to get rid of, to keep your mixtures pure.

To start, insert a beaker containing some chemical, and then click it with an empty hand to bring up a menu. In addition to holding a beaker, the ChemMaster can also hold a Pill Bottle (both simultaneously), more on these soon.

The Add to Buffer section is where all the juicy info is. It will show you a list of all the reagents inside the beaker, and their quantities. Beside each one are several options. Analyze will just bring up the description of that chemical, to tell you what it is and does. The rest of the buttons (1,5,10,all,custom) just control how much of that chemical you're going to move to the buffer.

The Buffer is the section between the horizontal lines. Imagine this as chemicals inside the ChemMaster. Once they're here, you can do several things with them.

  • The Transfer To section shows where chemicals will go when you transfer them out of the buffer, click it to change the destination. They can either go back into the beaker, or they can go into the disposal
    • This doesn't actually put them in the disposal, it just destroys them. Any reagents destroyed this way are gone forever, and cannot be recovered.
  • Chemicals in the buffer will have the same number control options as those in the beaker. This just transfers them to either of the destinations mentioned above.
  • The Create Bottle option will magically create a glass bottle, and put the contents of the buffer into it. The bottle is created outside of the ChemMaster and will appear on top of it. Bottles have a maximum capacity of 60u, so anything over that will still remain in the buffer.
    • By clicking the Icon to the right of this option, you can choose a visual style for the resulting bottle. Note that the bottle is transparent, and will take on the colour of the liquid inside it. You only choose the shape.
  • The Create Pill option will create a single edible pill out of the buffer contents. Again, up to 60u total dosage. If an empty pill bottle is inserted into the ChemMaster, the pill will be created inside that bottle. Otherwise it will appear on top of the machine.
  • The Create Multiple Pills option will create a number of pills that you get to specify. The contents of the buffer will be evenly divided amongst all the pills you make. And if a pill bottle is in the machine, the pills will be created inside it until it's full. Otherwise they appear on top in a big messy pile
    • By clicking the Icon to the right of this option, you can choose a visual style for the resulting pill(s). This will help people to tell your pills apart at a glance, which can be useful when you're making a bottle filled with a mixture of different pills.

Once you're done making pills and bottles, you'll probably want to make sure your beaker is empty again so you can make something new, if so be sure to transfer everything to the buffer. Once you eject the beaker, everything left in the buffer is destroyed.

If you've made a bottle of pills, don't forget to eject the pill bottle too, and then label it using the Hand Labeller.

All-In-One Grinder

Blender.png
The Grinder is your tool of choice for breaking down objects into reagents. You can put pills in it, to get back the chemicals they're made of. You can breakdown Phoron Crystals into liquid phoron. You can put fruits, vegetables, meals, meat etc into it as well. The results will be outputted into its beaker, which you can extract and stick in the ChemMaster to work with. It's good for undoing your mistakes if you make pills wrong, or for getting rare compounds (like carpotoxin) out of things that contain them. But making liquid phoron is the most common and important thing you'll use it for. Note that it will not break compounds back down into elements, nothing can do that.

Refridgerated Medicine Storage

Smartfridge.gif
A fancy Smart Fridge which exists as a wall block between the chem lab and medicine storage. This fridge is where you should put all the medicines and pills that you make, so that doctors can pick them up for usage. Things can be put in and taken out from all sides of it. It will only accept pills, pill bottles, and glass containers. And it has a nice little interface for dispensing things in quantity. It's also ID locked, and will only allow authorized medical staff to take things out, so anything you place there is safe from the grubby hands of drug-seeking assistants.

Tools

Smaller, hand-held things that you'll often use in chemistry.

Beakers

Beakerlarge.png
Beaker.png Beakers are the most important tool you have. They come in two sizes, normal and large. normal beakers hold 60u, large beakers hold 120u.

Normal beakers can be found easily all over medical, and you have a box of six in your lab. Large beakers are much less common, you only have three - Two on the tables, and one inside the grinder. They are precious, treasure them.

Beakers are used for putting into the dispenser to mix things, and then into the ChemMaster to make bottles and pills. Sometimes you'll need to use more than one to mix certain tricky things correctly.

If you end up losing them, more beakers can be made at the Autolathe in cargo.

Dropper

Dropper1.png
Droppers are a simple and occasionally used little tool. Their purpose is being one of very few reagent containers in the game which can transfer less than 5u per click.

Rightclick it in your hand and choose Set Transfer Amount. You can pick 1/2/3/4/5 units Using it on a beaker when it's empty will draw the set quantity of reagents out of that beaker. Using it on a beaker when it's not empty, will squeeze its contents out into the beaker.

The precision this affords is useful for a few complicated recipes, and especially for measuring out tiny amounts of phoron or similar valueable ingredients.

Science Goggles

ScienceGoggles.png
Science goggles are a completely unnecessary fashion accessory that are supplied on your table in the chemistry lab. They have three functions:
  • They protect against acid splashes, halving damage you take from acid to the face.
  • They provide 10% protection against anomalies, which is not relevant to a chemist at all.
  • They can be turned on and off to toggle an obnoxious purple overlay. This does literally nothing except make you see purple. The other two effects work regardless of whether the overlay is on.

Advanced Mass Spectrometer

Adv spectrometer.png
The Advanced Mass Spectrometer is your occasionally used tool for blood toxin testing. Rumour has it there was once a non-advanced Mass Spectrometer, but such a thing is definitely obsolete now.

To use it, take a blood sample from your patient with a syringe, and then use the syringe on the spectrometer. Then switch to it and click it in your hand to read the results. It should tell you the chemicals and quantities that are found in their blood. This is the only way to test blood samples, if you inject a blood sample into a beaker and check it in the ChemMaster, it will only show as blood.

Note that this tool can only be used for blood, if you have a beaker/bottle/syringe of something mysterious that isn't blood and you want to see what's in it, use the ChemMaster instead.

Cryostasis Beaker

Noreact.gif
The Cryostasis Beaker is an advanced tool that you don't have to begin with. It can only be made in the R&D Lab in science, if you want some you have to ask them for it.

The cryostasis beaker holds 60u, and it has the special property of preventing chemical reactions inside it. Any elements or compounds placed into it will not react with each other. If there are any reactions waiting to happen, they'll occur as soon as the contents are transferred into another beaker, or transferred into the buffer of the ChemMaster

Bluespace Beaker

BluespaceBeaker.gif
The Chemist's favourite, a Bluespace Beaker will really make your day. It is another advanced tool that you don't start with, and must request from science. However it's somewhat hard to make, so they may not be able to reliably make them for you.

This high-tech beaker uses reality-distorting bluespace technology to create a tiny pocket dimension for storing chemicals, which in practical terms means it can store a tremendous 300u of reagents inside it, making it 250% of the capacity of a Large Beaker. This allows you to easily make much larger batches of medicine - five bottles at a time.

Infographic and Information

This infographic teaches all of the basic Chems, it is highly recommended you keep it on hand if you're new.

A basic Chem infographic will be provided here, it is recommended to keep it on hand for new players; but beware, it only has the basic necessities of Chemistry, for advanced chems you will have to read further. Note: Spaceacillin has been split into multiple microbials. Thetamycin, Deltamivir, and Diphenhydramine. Other than that, this infographic is still up to date.

Metabolism and Overdose

Most medicines and chemicals designed for use in people have an overdose limit. If a person metabolizes more than this much of the chemical in a short time, they will suffer the overdose effect for that chemical, which is usually a bad thing. Overdose limits vary widely, but the most common value is 30 units.

The most common overdose effect is 'Toxins', the patient will suffer 0.2 points of toxins damage per second, as long as the medicine continues metabolizing in their system. This is only dependent on time, not on the quantity of the dose, so overdosing on medicines that metabolize slowly is far more dangerous, they'll keep poisoning the patient for longer.

It is important to note that metabolism is not the same as just putting the chemicals into a patient. All chemicals that are injected into, or fed to the patient, are stored harmlessly within their body until they can be properly absorbed, or 'metabolized'. This process happens at a variable rate for each chemical, but the most common metabolic rate is 0.2 units per proc, which works out to 0.1u per second

Overdose effects do not trigger until the patient has metabolized enough to reach the overdose limit, which may take several minutes.

Whenever this document mentions the word 'dose', it refers to how much has been metabolized into the patient, not how much has been injected into their blood.

Whenever a patient has fully metabolized all the volume of a drug that is present in their stomach or blood, the dose is instantly cleared, and the drug's effects are stopped. Even if they had overdosed before, once the dose is cleared its safe to administer more of the same thing.

Catalysts

Several of the more advanced chemistry recipes take an ingredient (usually phoron) which is marked as (Catalyst)

A Catalyst is a chemical which is required to help a chemical reaction, but does not become part of the finished result. Whenever a recipe involves a catalyst, the catalyst will be left over in the beaker, alongside the finished product. You can use the ChemMaster to extract the catalyst, put it in a bottle, and reuse it later.

  • Results in 1 unit.
Metabolisation: 0.05u/tick Overdose: 15u
An extremely powerful sedative that quickly incapacitates most people at even a tiny dose. It is effective for subduing violent patients, or as a self defense tool, to allow escape. It is not entirely safe, and will poison the subject to some degree.
Effects:
  • Once only, immediately upon injecting:
    • Causes Confusion at strength 2 (the patient stumbles around, and fails randomly at actions).
    • Causes Drowsyness at strength 2.
  • At <2u dosage.
    • Causes Weakness, strength 30 (this causes the patient to collapse, and be unable to move or interact).
    • Causes blurred vision, at strength 10.
  • At >1u dosage, the patient suffers 1 point of toxin damage per unit.
  • At >=2u dosage, causes sleep, strength 30.
Overdose Effects:

  • The toxins from the overdose effect stacks with the toxin damage a normal dose causes. An overdose can be somewhat harmful, but 15u is nowhere near lethal.
  • The following values are based on a combination of calculation and live testing. The results are not 100% consistent, as it varies due to server performance.
    • Chloral hydrate will trigger its weakness effect on the second proc, this happens three seconds after intial injection.
    • At a sufficiently high volume, Chloral Hydrate will reach a 2u dose and cause the patient to fall asleep in about 40 seconds.
    • Once the patient is asleep, they will stay asleep roughly 21 seconds for every unit in their blood after the second. A 5u dosage will keep someone asleep for approximately 1 minute 3 seconds.
    • Once the dose falls low enough, the patient will wake after roughly another 65 seconds.

    • Causes Drowsiness, strength 60.
Overdose Effects:
  • Toxins
Notes:
  • Soporific is widely available in the vending machines in medical, there is very little reason to actually make it in chemistry.
  • Drowsiness causes slower movement, blurred vision, and an approximate 15% chance every two seconds, to fall asleep for a couple of seconds.
  • The following values are based on a combination of calculation and live testing. The results are not 100% consistent, as it varies due to server performance.
    • At a sufficiently high volume, soporific will reach a 5u dose and cause the patient to fall asleep in about 110 seconds. They may fall asleep earlier than that from the drowsiness, but that's temporary and isn't safe for surgery.
    • Once the patient is asleep, they will stay asleep roughly 21 seconds for every unit in their blood after the fifth. A full 15u syringe will keep someone asleep for three and a half minutes. Each additional 15u will extend that time by another 5 minutes and 15 seconds.
    • Once the dose falls low enough, the patient will wake after roughly another 45 seconds.

Industrial Compounds

Things that are not designed to go inside people. Most of these chemicals have no effect when injected or ingested in people, unless otherwise noted.

The intended method of application is listed:

  • Contact: The substance works upon touching people, surfaces or objects. It can be applied by splashing it on with a beaker, spraying it from a spray bottle, or even using it as an additional reagent in grenades
  • Reactive: The substance is a main ingredient of a violent reaction upon mixing. Such things are useful in grenades, chemical shells, or even for feeding to mobs in two separate pills
  • Reaction: This is not a substance. Mixing this will remove all substances and cause a violent chemical reaction. Such things are useful in grenades, chemical shells, or even for feeding to mobs in two separate pills

Cleaning Agents

Things that are useful for cleaning, and often requested by janitors.

Luminol
2 parts Hydrazine, 2 parts Carbon, 2 parts Ammonia
Application Method: Contact
A compound that interacts with blood on the molecular level, causing it to become fluorescent and more visible, especially under UV light.
Effects:
  • Causes visible blood on floors to glow a bright blue colour when sprayed on it
    • Will not make blood on objects glow unless a UV light is also used
  • Under a UV light, will cause cleaned blood to glow a bright blue colour, and thus be visible
    • This only works if the blood was cleaned with Space Cleaner, or (for objects) with a sink or shower. Using Sterilizine, or a mop, will completely clean all traces and leave nothing to detect
    • Works with both tiles and objects.
    • Does not work on skin
Notes:
  • A spray bottle of Luminol is found in the detective's Forensics Kit. He may need a refill.
  • This chemical is designed for use in combination with a UV light. One can be found in the detective's kit, or they can be made in science.
