Day 23 - LabTrainingVR: Biosafety Cabinet
I've enjoyed exploring the App Lab applications in the Quest because they give you a sneak peek into the tools before completion. LabTrainingVR is a virtual reality app in the App Lab that allows users to practice laboratory techniques in a safe and controlled environment. One of the featured modules in the app is the Biosafety Cabinet module, which provides a realistic simulation of working in a biosafety cabinet. I found the Biosafety Cabinet the most challenging-apparently I need more practice.
The Biosafety Cabinet module in LabTrainingVR is a beneficial tool for laboratory employees who work with hazardous materials. Users can practice proper techniques for handling and manipulating materials within the cabinet and learn about the different types of biosafety cabinets and their uses.
The app provides clear instructions and virtual feedback on the TV screens throughout the labs. The more you practice improving your skills, the more confident you'll be working with biosafety cabinets. Additionally, the app allows for repeat practice and review, ensuring that students are fully prepared to work with biosafety cabinets when they enter the laboratory.
