TERRANIUM PORTABLE LAB ENVIRONMENT
Terranium Laboratory Resources is one of three primary lab equipment providers to science groups throughout the Conglomerate Space Station (CSSTAT) ecosystem. The other two (Pharmagexx and Damper Chemicals) specialize in zero-g equipment. Terranium focuses on providing “environmentally hardened, gravity robust” equipment and supplies. They are the undisputed favorite hardware manufacturer for the outgoing science technician.
The Terranium Portable Lab Environment (T-POLE) was developed for ease of travel (by foot, if necessary) and to allow scientists to collect, record and analyze samples in the field. Actual composition of the kit will vary depending on the environment being explored (aquatic or marshy situations would vary from known arid regions). A core lab kit includes visual (microscopic), spectrographic and environment-proof recording hardware to ensure all types of data can be properly examined and cataloged regardless of location. Self-powered, basic communications equipment is also built into the primary kit, so should the party survive, the data might yet be transmitted.
