The LabAssistant™ is one of the least popular Implants that Crigon Manufactory sells, but a core market of graduate students keeps the line afloat.



  • Not worth keeping in all the time, swap it in when you find something to research. Unlike the ExperTech™, this Implant's bonus does count towards skill minimums. With a LabAssistant™, you can Research items that require a skill of 1, even if you have spent no points on Research skill at all!
  • There is a really nice trick to research items even faster when having no Research skill at all. Hold off any researching until you find this Implant on Hydro. When you do: plug it in, start the research, and unplug it.
    The research will still continue, but with a faster speed, as thought you had Research level 2, not 1!
    This is only applicable to items requiring first level of Research.
