Please note that this list does not cover every single chem; it's important to keep in mind that the wiki is not always up to date. If you notice that chemicals are missing, or their information is incorrect, as always please contact a wiki maintainer or staff so that it can be corrected, or better yet submit an edit yourself and wait for it to be approved.

In the mean time, Pharmacists and most other medical staff have the Chemistry Codex on their PDAs, which has a list of every single chemical as well as its ingredients and catalysts (if any). While it does not show the side effects, metabolism rate, and so on like this guide does, it will always have an up-to-date listing of chemical recipes. If this guide is missing a chemical, use the codex until it is fixed.

Chemistry Equipment

Chemical Dispenser

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


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


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


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.


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



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.



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


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


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


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 anti-microbials. Thetamycin and Cetahydramine. 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 20 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.


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.


Below this heading are multiple tables detailing each chemical that can be synthesized as well as their recipes and effects, among other things. Unless there is additional text in the overdose column, assume that overdosing on the chemical in question - if it can be overdosed on - will deal minor organ damage to the liver, assuming the liver is still alive to absorb the damage.
