You'll generally find these objects in medbay, used by the medical staff. Some of them aren't, however!


In complete inverse of the example shown by toolboxes, medical kits are entirely harmless as blunt instruments. Don't even bother.

Item Image Contents Description
2x styptic powder patches (40u), 2x silver sulfadiazine patches (40u), 1x emergency auto-injector (ephinephrine), 1x analgesic pill, 1x health analyzer Basic all-purpose cure pack. Something for the burns, something for the cuts, shock relief and some aspirin.
Fire Medkit
3x burn patch (15u), 1x emergency auto-injector (ephinephrine) , 1x analgesic pill, 1x menthol pill (20u), 1x health analyzer Often found in Engineering and sometimes in firefighting closets, these medkits include lots of silver sulfadiazine for treating burn damage from fires, high heat, and electrical shocks.
Brute Medkit
3x healing patch (15u), 1x analgesic pill, 1x emergency auto-injector (ephinephrine) , 1x bandage, 1x health analyzer Like the fire medkit, but with styptic powder & bandage for brute damage.
Toxin Medkit
2x charcoal pills (20u), 2x potassium iodide pills (20u), 1x calomel syringe, 1x emergency auto-injector (ephinephrine), 1x health analyzer Contains active charcoal to cure TOX damage from poisons, exposure to plasma and other biohazards. There's also potassium iodide for radiation and calomel to purge out toxins (this does not itself cure TOX and in fact actually causes it).
Oxygen Medkit
3x salbutamol pills (20u), 2x emergency auto-injectors (salbutamol), 1x emergency auto-injector (ephinephrine), 1x health analyzer Found mainly in O2 emergency cabinets. The salbutamol dilates the air ways to heal OXY damage of people knocked out by a depressurization event, victims of strangulation or certain poisons. It is also useful to counter the suffocation that ramps up when somebody is in critical condition.
Neurological Medkit
3x mannitol pill (20u), 2x emergency auto-injectors (mannitol) , 1x emergency auto-injector (ephinephrine), 1x health analyzer The mannitol is meant to relieve brain damage in clones, but will help against any kind of brain damage.
Old Medkit
2x Bruise Pack, 2x Ointment, 1x Lexorin Injector, 1x Synaptizine Injector, Health Analyzer Contains a bunch of obsolete medical supplies. Not readily available, but it's out there.
Emergency Critical-Condition First Aid
1x emergency auto-injector (mannitol), 1x emergency auto-injector (perfluorodecalin), 1x emergency auto-injector (atropine), 1x emergency auto-injector (ephinephrine), 1x emergency auto-injector (synaptizine), 1x emergency auto-injector (saline-glucose solution), 1x health analyzer (upgraded) High end kit for saving those deep into critical condition and close to dying. Can be bought from D.O.C. an NPC robot doctor merchant that appears in the Debris Field on space maps and around the station z-level on ocean maps for a steep price.

Drug Application

The type of medicine you wish to administer is an important factor here. For instance, certain tools are more suitable for topical drugs (e.g. styptic powder or synthflesh). Please refer to Chemistry to learn more about the difference between TOUCH and INGEST reactions.

Item Image Description
GenericPatchNew.png MedicalPatchNew.png
Medical patches stick onto patients, transferring all of their contents to patient through TOUCH reaction over time, and then having half of the TOUCH-applied chemicals transferred to the bloostream. This process is typically over half a minute and longer, and patches fall off when they run out. The more chems in a patch, the longer it lasts and the more chems administered per second, and the more patches applied, the faster the healing-over-time. Patches (regardless of type) can also reduce bleeding. Since this isn't guaranteed to work, bandages and sutures are still the preferred remedy. They also have a tamper-proof seal, which allows them to be applied to patients without delay. Found in many medkits, Port-a-NanoMed, and the NanoMed Plus.

Empty patches, available in medbay or from the medical manufacturer, can be injected by syringe with any mix of medicine or dangerous toxins, though are primarily intended for topical drugs and transfer only half the contents to the patient's bloodstream. Custom as well as modified medical patches don't have a tamper-proof seal, so there's a delay in applying them (can be removed with an emag). Throwing a patch with a tamper-proof seal at someone has a chance to have it stick to them.
Mini Patch
MiniMedicalPatchEmpty.png MiniMedicalPatch.png
Mini patches hold less reagents, but are otherwise identical to regular patches. They typically come in mini-patch boxes. You can click on the box while it's in your hand to open it, and you can click on someone with the box open to apply a patch onto someone, without having to actually get it out. The MiniMed vendor sells a few of these, and mini-patches and their boxes can often be found in non-Medical areas like Engineering where on-site injuries are expected.
AutoMenderBruteV2-32x32.png / AutoMenderBurnV2-32x32.png
Administers chems over time via TOUCH, faster than a medical patch. The auto-mender has a whopping 200 unit capacity and the amount of the dispensed reagent increases over time as the automender is applied, up to a point. However, it restricted to certain chems, the same ones as the hypospray specifically, and both the person applying the mender and person receiving its chems have to stay still, though they can still use their hands and interact with things.

Used to be extremely easy to produce, until people realized that they effectively made the Medical Department a glorified warehouse. Nowadays Auto-Menders require gold to be made, and existing ones that Medical Doctors spawn with can be refilled with certain chems or can be refilled with Auto-Mender cartridges found in medical vending machines.

Auto-Mender Refill Cartridge
Can be used on a empty or partially full Auto-Mender to refill it with whatever is in the refill cartridge. Can be found in medical vending machines.
Hypo for short. Injects chemicals instantly. Holds up to 30 units and can be adjusted to dispense varying amounts of its contents. More can be made with a medical fabricator if required, but hyposprays will always reject harmful chemicals unless emagged.
Emergency Auto-Injector
Disposable hypospray found in medkits and the Port-a-NanoMed. Typically contains 10 units of epinephrine or another medical chem.
High-Capacity Auto-Injector
JuggernautInjector.png DonkInjector.png
A special version of the emergency auto-injector with higher capacity and multiple uses. The nuclear operatives' Class Crate - Field Medic comes with two unique ones, and there are a couple of unused and unobtainable versions in the code that each contain 50 units of a single medicine and administer 5 units of it with each use, a remnant of an earlier iteration of said crate.
The syringe can be set to inject or draw and moves 5 units of chemicals at a time. Drawing from a person will take a blood sample. Neither are instant, unless the recipient is yourself. Total capacity is 15 units.
Holds up to 5 units of chemicals, and drops all of it at once onto its target. Dropping takes about half as much time as injecting with a syringe.
Mechanical Dropper
A precision laboratory tool available in chemistry. Allows you to transfer reagents (up to 10 units) in increments of 0.1 units.
BeakerV3.png LargeBeakerV3.png
Holds up to 50 units of chemicals, though larger beakers (100 units) also exist. Standard equipment for chemistry, but medbay has some as well. Click on someone while holding the beaker to splash them with its contents, applying their TOUCH effects, e.g. splashing styptic powder to fix BRUTE. For more information about beakers in general, see its respective entry on the Chemistry page.
Reserve Tank
A 100 unit beaker with a fancy name, useful for refilling hyposprays and auto-menders and conducting chemistry. Typically comes in four packs that contain styptic powder, silver sulfadiazine, epinephrine, and charcoal/anti-tox. These four packs are available from Cargo through Medical: Medical Reservoir Crates and appear in crates and on tables in Medbay on some maps.
Medicine Bottle
Essentially a smaller version of the beaker. It typically has a reduced capacity of around 30 units, but that can vary. They usually come pre-loaded with medicine and are stored in the medbay lockers and vending machine.
Reagent Bottle
Essentially a fancy beaker, complete with 50 unit capacity. Chemistry has a few with useful base compounds in a chemical storage locker, Morgue often has a bottle with formaldehyde, and more bottles (with different reagents, obviously) can be made with a CheMaster.
When swallowed, causes INGEST effects and instantly deposits all of the pill's contents into the patient. Similar to syringes, swallowing a pill yourself (Hotkey: C for Goon WASD, Z for /tg/style WASD, or just click on yourself while holding the pill) is instant, while attempting to force others to swallow a pill (click on another person while holding a pill) has a delay. Delay of administering will scale with the volume of the pill, i.e a 10 unit pill taking around three seconds to administer, as opposed to a 90 unit pill taking five seconds.

Pills can also be dissolved in a beaker or similar container, converting their entire contents back into liquid form. To do this, either click on the pill with the container or click on the container with the pill. This can be useful for smaller doses, as some pills hold large amounts of chemicals - 50 units in most cases and up to 100 if a scientist has gotten their hands on a large beaker. Doses this high are not usually necessary - It's often not desirable or practical to administer a whole pill of calomel, for example.

Pills come in many shapes and colors. Pills made via a CheMaster have color based on color of the constituent reagents and their proportions. All CheMaster pills are cylindrical, a good clue to prevent swallowing pure neurotoxin. Pills in medkits and like, as well as pills from NPC merchants, usually have a pre-set appearance, while ???? (aka "designer drug") pills have randomly-generated forms.

Tiny, disposable vials containing up to 5u of a chemical. When they are used, the glass breaks, and the chemical inside is inhaled, depositing it into the bloodstream and applying its INGEST effect. The NanoMed and Port-A-NanoMed contain a few of these containing smelling salts.
Bruise Pack
Outdated, but forgotten stashes still float around in deep space. Heals brute damage and can slow the rate of blood loss. You must target the damaged part of the player's body.
As above, but for burns.
Reduces the amount of bleeding, hence repeated application might be necessary to bandage a wound completely. You can also craft these if you don't have access to medical supplies. Either way, bandages alone aren't sufficient for mending surgical incisions. Bandages can be removed with wirecutters or scissors if the patient doesn't like the cosmetic overlay on their mob.
Blood pack / IV drip
IVStand.png BloodBag.png
Transfusions may be necessary in case of severe blood loss; IV drips are particularly good at this because patients absorb blood reagent three times faster when receiving it via IV. Drips hold 250 units by default and come in two flavors: synthetic blood, available from medbay's blood supply freezer, and saline, a blood regenerator and patient stabilizer commonly found in the operating theater and near medkit lockers. Use a pack in-hand to set it to INJECT and use it on a patient to start transferring its contents into them; once emptied, a pack can be replenished by setting it to DRAW and collecting blood directly from a donor or by clicking on it with beakers or syringes filled with many different chemicals. A scalpel can be used on an IV bag to slice it open, enabling its reagents to be poured into other containers.

Packs (regardless of type) can be suspended from an IV stand, which in turn can be fastened to chairs, beds and operating tables via drag & drop. Click-drag the IV stand onto a patient to attach the needle.
NT Syringe Gun
Shoots a syringe that contains 15 units of chems from the gun's internal reservoir and gradually injects all 15 units into the victim patient unless removed. Reservoir has a 90u capacity, i.e. up to 6 shots, which you can drain by right-clicking it and choosing drain contents, and it only accepts the chems usable in hyposprays. Chems must obviously be refilled, but syringes are created automagicially, so you don't need to restock them; besides, you can't insert actual syringes or things similar to it anyways. Found in the Medical Director's equipment locker.

If emagged, this behaves quite differently. It'll still have the chems whitelist, but instead of a shot with 15 units of chems, it shoots its entire reservoir for one potentially massive dose.
Vape to heal people. Really. Like a standard e-cigarette, it emits a 5x5 chemsmoke cloud containing 10 units of whatever was in the Medi-Vape when used, and for whatever reason, the smoke affects whoever's on the other side of a phone, allowing for true telemedicine. It shares a whitelist with the hypospray, and it can be found by hacking the Public MiniMeds and NanoMeds.


The majority of these items can be found in various places across medbay itself or the medicine closets. Essential tools (such as scalpels, saws and staplers for surgery) are also available from the medical or robotics fabricator.

Item Image Description
Health Analyzer
HealthAnalyzerFullyUpgradedV2-32x32.png MedPDAV2-32x32.png
Scan humans or monkeys to get a report of their health, damage taken, any viruses and other ailments. Regular analyzers can be upgraded with a health analyzer upgrade, allowing it to function as a reagent scanner that can be toggled on/off and only works on mobs. The medical PDA provides the same functionality with two separate programs, though its reagent scanner is more flexible and doesn't have the same restrictions. It can also be upgraded with a organ scan upgrade, allow it to assess organ damage qualitatively. It also displays missing organs in red.
Genetic Analyzer
Scan humans or monkeys to compare their DNA to known genes in the database. Geneticists spawn with this.
Health Analyzer Upgrade
Grants ProDoc goggles a more detailed health readout at close range and allows health analyzers, cryo cells, and floor scanners to scan for reagents in mobs. A few spawn in the NanoMed Plus and in a "health analyzer upgrade" box somewhere in Medbay.
Health Analyzer Organ Scan Upgrade
Allows health analyzers to give vague damage descriptions of damage to different organs. Available from the NanoMed Plus.
ProDoc Health Goggles
ProDocHealthgogglesV2-32x32.png ProDocHealthgogglesUpgradedV2-32x32.png
These goggles allow you to assess the health of everyone in sight, as well as whether or not they have a health implant, a cloner implant, and/or cyber organs, using a system of icons shown below. When equipped with a health analyzer upgrade, you can also examine anybody within a 4 tile radius to obtain a detailed health scan (feature can be toggled on/off), and their sprite changes to the one on the right. Useful for identifying and prioritizing severely injured patients at a glance. Medical doctors, the Medical Director, and roboticists start with a pair on.
Icon Health Level Meaning
100% Perfectly fine. They can be on their way out now.
80-99% Hurt, but bearable. Needs some Saline and perhaps a patch or pill.
60-80% Needs some assistance. A quick pill or patch will do.
40-60% Hurting for some healing. Better look into it.
20-40% Terribly injured. Needs some serious assistance.
0-20% Close to dying. Tend to them urgently!
< 0% Dying! Get out the atropine/epinephrine and treat them quickly!
N/A Dead. Resurrect them with robotics, cloning, or chemistry. Check first though.
N/A Implanted with a Health Monitor implant.
N/A Implanted with a Cloner Monitor implant.
N/A Implanted with both a Health Monitor implant and a Cloner Monitor implant.
N/A Has one or more cyberorgans.
Medical Belt
Basically a medkit that you wear around your waist, this belt can hold all kinds of medical drugs and a variety of medical tools, such as defibrillators, syringes, and hyposprays. In addition, many tiny and small items (tools, ammo etc) are compatible. All Medical Doctors and Medical Directors spawn with a prepared version on their belt slot. There's often extras in Medbay near paramedic suits, and the Medbay kit from Cargo also has one.
Robotics Belt
A belt usually worn by robotics that comes pre-stocked with tools used for the construction of silicon lifeforms along with the tools to preform lobotomies. Contains 1x screwdriver (grey), 1x crowbar (grey), 1x welding tool (grey), 1x wrench (grey), 1x scalpel and 1x circular saw.
Medical Headset
Medical headset.png
Stay in touch and coordinate with your colleagues. Type say :m to access the medical channel.
Can be made at a medical fabricator. Ascertain if the patient is on certain drugs, has brain damage, or has a blood clot in their brain. Simply turn it on (click on it) and hold it up to a person's head (make sure you're targeting the head) to use it. There are various messages associated with certain ailments:
  • Pupils (very) constricted: Patient is (overdosing) on morphine or space drugs.
  • Pupils (very) dilated: Patient is (overdosing) on atropine, antihistamine, methamphatamine, crank, bath salts, or cat drugs.
  • Right pupil doesn't follow light and/or dilated: Patient has brain damage.
  • Left pupil doesn't follow light: Patient is having a blood clot in their brain, i.e. a stroke.
Assess if a patient has certain chemicals, particular levels of OXY damage, and other respiratory ailments. To use, click on person while on Help intent and targeting the chest; having medical training makes the process go faster and with less chance of accidentally listening to something else or comically stabbing yourself, while clumsiness and brain damage make it more likely. Comes in the doctor bag owned by the Medical Director and can be created by a medical fabricator. Not wearable, has no effect on safes.

A number of messages may appear when using the stethoscope, each associated with a particular condition:

Message Meaning
"Nothing on the left/right" Patient is missing a lung.
"Nothing...other than a faint lub-dub from the heart" Patient is missing both lungs.
"Pronounced whirr of two airpumps" Patient has two cyberlungs.
"Faint whirr of an airpump" Patient has just one cyberlung.
"Fluid sloughing around inside...interspersed with crackling noises" Patient is suffering from respiratory failure!
"Distorted, high-pitched wheeze" Patient has coniine, saxitoxin, or strychnine in their system, which are all poisons!
"Twitchy, labored breathing interspersed with short gasps" Patient's has more than 80 OXY, for whatever reason.
"Coarse crackling noises" One of patient's lungs has more than 50 lung damage.
"Low-pitched wheezing" Patient has histamine, possibly indicating they are having a severe allergic reaction.
"Very slow, shallow breathing" Patient is either on some sort of heavy sedative, namely either diethyl ether, haloperidol, krokodil, or morphine, or is mildly drunk (> 25 units of ethanol inside them).
"Slightly slow breathing" Patient has cannabidiol, diphenhydramine/antihistamine, or less than 25 units of ethanol inside them.
"Fast breathing" Patient has some sort of stimulant inside them. The stethoscope cannot detect every single stim, but it can detect: crank, energy drink, and epinephrine, methamphetamine. This could also mean the patient has recently used a syringe of stimulants.
"Hyperventilation with an irregular pattern" Patient has 60-80 OXY.
"Hyperventilation" Patient has 20-60 OXY.
"Normal breathing" Patient has less than 20 OXY and no respiratory problems.
"Extremely slow breathing interspersed with what sounds like light snoring" Patient is sleeping.
The defibrillator (or just "defib") is one option to treat cardiac arrest. Clicking on a patient with the defib has a 75% chance to bring them out of arrest and always gives them a few seconds of "Defibrillated". The "Defibrillated" status makes further applications of the defibrillator (and substitutes for it) more likely to cure the cardiac arrest (for the defib specifically the chance goes from 75% to 90%) and prevents the patient from developing cardiac arrest, giving some space to treat the underlying condition.

The defib can also cure suffocation damage. When the patient is below 0 health (i.e. critical condition), it has a flat 66% chance to cure 50 OXY. If they have the "Defibrillated" status effect from being defibbed beforehand, it is guaranteed to cure 10 OXY, in addition to the chance for the additional 50.

Using the defib will also give you messages to show how successful the defibrillation was (or not):

Chat Message Verbal Alert Mode Message Meaning
[patient name] doesn't respond at all! ERROR: Unable to complete circuit for shock delivery! Patient has SMES Human and thus cannot be defibbed.
[patient name] doesn't respond at all! ERROR: Patient is deceased. Patient is dead, Jim. Revive them.
N/A Normal cardiac rhythm restored. Patient has been cured of cardiac arrest...for now.
N/A Lethal dysrhythmia detected. Patient is still in cardiac arrest! Defibrillation attempt was unsuccessful. You need to defib them again.
[patient name] looks horribly injured. Resuscitation alone may not help revive them. Patient has life-threatening injuries. Patient is unlikely to survive unless these wounds are treated. Patient has at least 90 BRUTE, BURN, and/or TOX combined (notice that OXY is not included). It'd be a good idea to treat them so they stop entering cardiac arrest. This is not shown if patient is committing suicide.
[patient name] inhales deeply! N/A You got lucky and successfully healed 50 OXY.
[patient name] inhales sharply! N/A Patient had the Defibrillated status effect, so your attempt at defibbing them healed a guaranteed 10 OXY.
[patient name] doesn't respond! N/A The defib didn't heal any damage. It can still do other things.
The defibrillator's on board scanner indicates that the target is undergoing a cardiac arrest! N/A The defib is emagged and is doing the opposite of defibbing.

When used on those not in critical condition, it weakens them for a short 0.1 second, rather like a disarm than a stun. These can be found in the Operating Theatre/Surgery Room as well as in the medical supply carts. Every Medical Doctor spawns with one. More can be bought via Cargo's Medbay kit and/or replicated with the help of the Engineers.

Like most devices, defibrillators can be emagged. Emagged defibs will remove huge chunks of stamina and briefly knock out targets whose stamina is already low (although it can't reduce stamina into the negatives). And on top of that, each use has a 10% chance to stop the victim's heart outright! This is by no means a reliable murder method, though, and the description gains a very obvious tell for anyone who examines it -- it'll mention that the defib's screen is flashing the word "KILL" over and over.

Mounted Defibrillator
Like your regular defib, but it's stuck to one place, since if you move away from its mount, the defib springs back to it, similar to a phone. Found in Medbay and, if your map has one, usually the Medical Booth too.
Port-A-NanoMed Remote
RemoteNew.png MedPDAV2-32x32.png
Use it once to summon the Port-A-NanoMed. Grab the supplies you need, then use it again to send it back to medbay. The NanoMed Remote app that comes with most medical PDAs provides a similar functionality, albeit with separate buttons for summoning and sending the NanoMed.
Port-A-Medbay Remote
RemoteNew.png MedPDAV2-32x32.png
Use it once to summon the Port-A-Medbay. Grab the patient and click on the Port-A-Medbay to shove them in, then use it again to send them back to medbay. As with the Port-a-NanoMed, the Med-U Cart's P-Medbay Remote app offers a similar functionality.
DNA Injector
Geneticists will occasionally use these as part of their research to inject people with superpowers or (more likely) horrible disabilities.
DNA Activator
Another tool for Geneticists, similar to the DNA Injector, but only works if the target already has the power in question latent in their DNA.
Comes in a variety of different flavors. While they often come in a glass case, you do not need to remove it to insert the implant into an implanter or implant gun.
Instantly adds the implant to your target. To insert an implant into it, click on it with the implant of choice in your active hand. Can be made at medical and robotics fabricators, and each SecTech has one too.
Implant gun
A gun that, unsurprisingly, shoots Implants, so you don't have to get all up into people's personal spaces to give them out. Try to tell them this first before their basic run-from-a-gunman instinct kicks in and you miss, causing the implant to drop onto the floor instead of their body. As with the implanter, injection is instant, and inserting another implant works exactly the same way.

Surgery Tools

Various implements for conducting surgery. Save for anesthetic, all of these can be made at robotics fabricators and medical fabricators.

Item Image Description
Part of the surgery procedure. Depending on the body part you are aiming at, it will remove implants, bullets, limbs, butts or brains. Can be poisoned by dipping the blade in a beaker or medicine bottle.
Circular Saw
Another essential tool for surgery. Can be poisoned too.
Enucleation Spoon
Required for eye surgery. Can be poisoned too.
Surgical Scissors
Another essential tool for surgery.
Staple Gun
Used to reattach limbs. For more information, please refer to Doctoring.
Passively reduces the amount of bleeding damage taken during chest and head surgery when hold in your inactive/off hand. Can also be used to clamp the patient's bleeders manually if they have open incisions and are laying on an operating table.
Suture (or stitches) holds body tissue together more efficiently and is capable of closing surgical incisions. Outside of surgery, sutures generally only require one use to stop bleeding caused by other types of damage. Available from robotics and medical fabricators.
Anesthetic Supplies
Found in the anesthetic locker in medbay, these tanks contain N2O. They are intended to be strapped to patients before an operation to ease the pain and reduce the probability of complications. In practice, however, they are rarely used because surgery is a relatively speedy affair and there are other ways (e.g. sedatives) to achieve the same effect.

Cloning Modules

Various upgrades from NPC merchants that improve the cloner in some way or grant it some sort of new ability. Each cloner can support multiple different upgrades, though it can only accommodate one of each module. Different components of the cloner accept different modules. To add a module to a component, simply click on the component with the module in your active hand; for ones that specifically slot into the console, you must do this when the clonepod is inactive. To remove a Gene Power, NecroScan II, or Rehabilitation module, use a screwdriver on the console.

Item Image Inserts Into: Description
NecroScan II Cloner Upgrade Module
CloningConsole.png Cloning Console Allows the scanner to scan and potentially clone decomposing/decomposed bodies, including those that have completely skeletonized, depending on the origin. But not Changeling husks. Don't let anybody ever tell you otherwise. If the console already has Prototype Rehabilitation Module #17, you cannot insert this into the console; they're mutually exclusive. You can buy this from Thrifty B.O.B., a salvage-themed trader in the Debris Field, for 2400 credits, and it sometimes appears in abandoned crates, as part of the departmental item pool.
Biomatter Recycling Unit
ClonePodV2-32x32.png Cloning Pod Halves the amount of biomatter used for each clone. That means normal, otherwise unmodified lower biomatter level by only 8 or 9 with a normal full cycle, while speedy cloners consume "only" about 24.
ClonePodV2-32x32.png Cloning Pod Halves the time it takes for a clone to be produced, but triples the amount of biomatter consumed. The latter effect multiplicatively "stacks" with the biomatter recycling unit's biomatter reduction.
Gene Power Module
GenePowerModuleV2.png GenePowerModuleLoaded.gif
CloningConsole.png Cloning Console Gives each clone the mutation of the DNA Injector inserted into the module. Grief rules still apply, so don't think this will let you give everyone Gyrus X as a non-antag.
Prototype Rehabilitation Module #17
CloningConsole.png Cloning Console Has a 75% chance of removing the Antagonist status of the person being cloned, which can be toggled on or off through the console. Dyes the cloning pod fluid a vivid electric blue. Currently unobtainable, and perhaps for a good reason: it's against the Space Geneva Convention, which is odd, considering the articles cover the laws of war. Mutually exclusive with the NecroScan II.
Mindhack Cloning Module
ClonePodV2-32x32.png Cloning Pod Reconfigures brains of those cloned to obey the person who...hey, wait a minute.
ProBlender X Enzymatic Reclaimer Upgrade Module
EnzymaticReclaimerV2-32x32.png Enzymatic Reclaimer Makes the enzymatic reclaimer more efficient. As you can probably guess from the name, the ProBlender X enzymatic reclaimer upgrade module slots into the enzymatic reclaimer rather than the clonepod or computer. Thrifty B.O.B. sells it as "Enzymatic Reclaimer Upgrade Board" for 2400 credits a piece, and you can randomly find it inside abandoned crates, as part of the "departmental" item pool.


Lockers full of medicine and other medical equipment. Most of these are restricted to those with Medical Equipment access. Also, all these spawn bolted to the floor, so if you need to move any of these, you need to click on the locker with a wrench first to unbolt it.

Item Image Contents Description
Medicine Storage Locker
1x Auditory Headset
1x medical eyepatch
3x bottles (charcoal) (30u of charcoal)
3x bottles (epinephrine) (30u of epinephrine)
1x syringe box (7x syringes)
1x sterile masks box (7x sterile mask)
1x latex gloves box (7x latex gloves, all one randomly-chosen color)
2x droppers
2x beaker
Not a lot of medicine if you actually think about it. Notably, each medicine storage locker has a VISOR and auditory headset for getting around their respective disabilities and a couple bottles of charcoal and epinephrine.
Medkit Storage Locker
1x first aid
1x brute first aid
1x fire first aid
1x toxin first aid
1x oxygen deprivation first aid
1x neurological damage first aid
The medkit storage locker is exactly what it says on the tin. Six medkits, all in a cute little row, like a rainbow of sorts.
Anesthetic Storage Locker
2x bottle (morphine) (30u of morphine)
1x syringe box (7x syringes)
5x Gas Tank (Sleeping Agent)
4x medical masks
Morphine, sleeping gas, and the means to administer them, for improving surgery success. Naturally, anesthetic storage lockers are common sight in surgery rooms.
Restricted Medical Locker
2x perfluorodecalin bottles (30u of perfluorodecalin)
1x pentetic acid bottle (30u of pentetic acid)
1x omnizine bottle (30u of omnizine)
1x ether bottle (30u of diethyl ether)
1x haloperidol bottle (30u of haloperidol)
Six bottles of rare but powerful medicine (and stuff that can knock you out). Unlike the other lockers on this list, the restricted medical locker needs Medical Director's Office access to open, which is to say, you gotta be da boss to get the good stuff.
Animal Control Locker
1x remote signaler
5x Electropacks
2x blindfolds
2x vocal translators
In this case, "animal" means monkeys, and "animal control" means restraining them for experiments, though there are vocal translators for more diplomatic approaches. Animal Control lockers only require Medical access, which allows quite a few jobs to use these. These are often found in Genetics's monkey pen, ostensibly for the Geneticists' use.
Medical Uniform Locker
1x medic's backpack
1x medic's satchel
1x robotics backpack
1x genetics backpack
1x robotics satchel
1x genetics satchel

Item Image Description
Prescription Glasses
Simple pair of glasses to correct nearsightedness. Rarely requested by patients, but may come in handy after a radiation storm or cloning accident.
If someone has been permanently or temporarily blinded or has had their eyes removed, the VISOR is an option to restore their eyesight in a somewhat grainy fashion. Obviously inspired by the namesake on Star Trek TNG.
Auditory Headset
Deaf headset.png
A sophisticated hearing aid that also functions like a regular headset. It can be a good idea to manufacture a copy in advance, since deafness is a surprisingly common condition.
Vocal Translator
Not a Spanish-to-English translator or some such, but more like a Monkey-to-English translator, hence it's sometimes called a monkey translator. When Monkeys speak, non-monkeys normally cannot understand what they're saying, instead hearing only "chimpers" or some such. This device fixes that; any monkey wearing this can be understood by humans, cyborgs, AIs, and the like, as if a regular person was speaking. There are two of these in each Animal Control Locker in Genetics, the Lab Monkey Crate from QM has one, and every ValuChimp has one or two as a hidden item.
Helps people without legs (and sometimes with) move around at mostly normal movement speed. Simply click-drag your sprite onto the chair to climb in, similar to a regular chair. Click on it again to climb out. Be careful when climbing and descending stairs, unless you enjoy flipping over and getting thrown out of your seat. Good thing you can just click on the chair to raise it back up.
Sterile Mask
Premier protective equipment against disease and also sometimes called a surgical mask. Prevents you from getting infected by airborne viruses and provides 50% disease resistance, reducing chance of contacting a disease in general, especially when combined with other protective clothing. Does not link to internals. Scattered throughout Medbay, typically concentrating in the Operating Theatre, can be created at medical fabricators, and sold by MiniMeds.
Medical Scrubs
In theory, this basic surgical attire is intended to be worn by medical personnel in the operating room. Comes in several colors, the vast majority of which are made through the medical fabricator.
  • BlueScrubs.png Blue, or "Navy" as the medical fab calls it.
  • MaroonScrubs.png Maroon
  • OrangeScrubs.png Orange
  • PinkScrubs.png Pink. The medical fab calls it "Hot Pink" specifically.
  • PurpleScrubs.png Purple. It's called "Violet" in the medical fab UI.
  • TealScrubs.png Teal
  • WhiteScrubs.png White
  • FlowerScrubs.png Flower - Unlike the other scrubs, these floral scrubs cannot be made at the fabricator. Instead, you must convert a pair of scrubs into this design through the medal reward for the Primum non nocere medal.
Patients undergoing surgeries and the doctors that perform them are apparently supposed to wear these. In reality, these usually sit in gowns boxes in cabinets until some weirdo decides to wear them like a regular dress. Medical fabricators can make more of these in case said weirdo loses all of them.
Nurse Dress
Adorned with a small blue cross, so you don't get shot by the Red Space Cross for wearing this. This nurse dress is an outerwear/exo-suit item, so you can wear it over scrubs, your doctor jumpsuit, etc. You can find nurse dresses in the Medical Apparel machine.
Nurse Hat
A little nurse cap, for when you want to look like a nurse and probably act like a nurse. A couple of these spawn in the Medical Apparel machine.
Traditional Nurse Hat
A blast from the past, from the days when nurses looked like church deaconesses. The Traditional Nurse Hat is a full-on headdress, so it hides your hair but not your face. Found in the Medical Apparel machine.
Medical Winter Coat
A warm coat with medical colors that is protective against the cold. Can be found in the Medical Apparel machine
Head Mirror
A mirror for a very professional doctor that lets their patients look at themselves. Found in the Medical Apparel machine.
Surgical Face Shield
Attire for the professional surgeon. Comes in random colors, with an rare bee-themed variant that has a 1% chance of appearing in place of a normal surgical face shield. Surprisingly, offers less disease resistance than sterile masks, but it does slightly reduce effect of lights bright enough to cause stuns and decreases damage from melee attacks to the head by one. Can be made at a medical fabricator and is often found in the Operating Theatre and elsewhere in Medbay.
Paramedic Suit
An insulated suit which offers moderate thermal and biological protection. It may be helpful to reach patients trapped in bombed-out parts of the station.
BiosuitNew.png Biohood.png
Provides even better protection against diseases and viral hazards.
When applied to someone, they cannot properly speak, as anything said by them will come out as muffled grunts. Useful for people who won't shut up. Stored in medbay and the armory.
If you hold it in your hand and click on the target while on any intent besides Harm, you'll attempt to blindfold them. The action has a delay, which will be interrupted if you move or the target you're attempting to blind moves so they're no longer adjacent to you. Found in Medbay, usually in "Animal Control" lockers, and sometimes the Armory.
Body Bag
BodyBag.png BodyBagDeployed.png
Intended for the storage and transportation of corpses. Use the bag to deploy it, drag & drop empty bags onto yourself to fold them back up. Corpses in closed body bags do not produce miasma but still decay. Body bags cannot be attached as item arms.
Doctor's Bag
A fashionable carrying case for professional doctors, naturally found in the Medical Director's locker. Contains a scalpel, circular saw, suture, syringe, blood pack, and stethoscope.
Data Disk
DataDiskRedV2-32x32.gif DataDiskBlueV2-32x32.gif DataDiskYellowV2-32x32.gif
A floppy with someone's cloning scan information. To make one, you simply insert a standard data disk (like the ones in Tech Storage and elsewhere), and then, when you access someone's Cloning Record, you press Save it put a copy of the record of on the disk. You can then insert the record back into the console and load the record at any time. Security Officers and the HoS start with one of these. A multitool is incapable of wiping the data from this disk; an EMP (such as from EMP grenades) can.
Stress Ball
A little ball to help a person air their grievances. You can fidget with the ball for a bit and feel emotionally better, or have the ball speak for you after a traumatic event with a saber-wielding traitor. Available in medical fabricators as well as in a few offices such as the Therapist Office on Oshan Laboratory.


Item Image Description
In-floor Health Scanner
Consists of a floor scanner linked to a status screen. Examine the screen to view the medical status of the person standing on said scanner; the person on the scanner also gets their medical status. The readout is identical to a stock health analyzer with no upgrades installed. It will also send an alert to all medical PDAs if the scanner detects the person is in critical condition.
These are essentially safe storage units for living people - anyone inside will be shielded from most outside dangers and provided with a stable oxygen supply. The console (if any) will show you a summary of the occupant's health and optionally allow the injection of certain rejuvenators to speed up paralysis recovery. Depending on the type of injury, the sleeper synthesizes saline (baseline stabilizer), ephedrine (crit), salbutamol (suffocation) or charcoal (toxins) either automatically if the occupant is in hibernation, or manually when prompted by the user. The primary purpose of sleepers is to keep the patient alive while damage-specific medicine is being prepared by a medical doctor. Addictions, which are otherwise untreatable with medicine, can also be cured when the patient is hibernating, however.
Cryogenic Healing Pod
CryogenicHealingPodEmpty.pngCryotube new.gif
Variously called "cryo cells", "cryo tubes", "cryo chambers", and "cryogenic cells", cryogenic healing pods heal critically injured patients fairly reliably using cryoxadone, cooling them down with cold gas. Medbay starts with two of these. For more info, refer to Using the Cryo Chambers.
Cools incoming gas from a connected O2 canister. The temperature can be adjusted and doctors want to set it as low as possible.
A special vending machine with a built-in teleporter, accessible by those with Medical Equipment access. Compared to the stationary model, the Port-A-NanoMed is geared towards emergency, on-the-spot medicine. Can be controlled with a medical PDA or separate remote found on the table next to it. If necessary, the Port-a-NanoMed's home turf can be changed by click-dragging the machine onto an adjacent floor tile.
A special sleeper with a built-in teleporter, used to safely transfer critically-wounded patients to medbay for further treatment. It even sends a PDA alert to all Medical PDAs when it's sent to its home turf with someone inside it to facilitate this. Can be controlled with either the medical PDA app or the standalone remote.
Cloning Scanner
CloningConsole.png CloningMachineScannerOffV2-32x32.gif CloningMachineScannerOnV2-32x32.gif
The cloning scanner cannot scan husks, people who have logged out or bodies that have decayed. An upgrade module to remove that third restriction can be acquired somewhere in space. For more information, please refer to Medical Doctor.
Cloning Pod
This small, computer-controlled pod is used to grow living clones of dead people. A steady supply of biomass is required for this process. Click on it to check the current cloning cycle and biomass fill level. You can rename the pod by clicking on it with a hand labeler. It is possible for multiple cloning pods to be attached to a cloning scanner and console, so long as said pods are within 4 tiles of the console. When initiating a cloning cycle, the system chooses the inactive pod with the highest biomatter.
Enzymatic Reclaimer
This is where the biomass comes from. Accepts corpses (human/monkey), slabs of meat or viscerite, but not living humans or player-controlled monkeys unless emagged. Monkeys that are NPCs can always be reclaimed, though, even if they're still alive. When a corpse is put into the machine, it automatically spits out any clothes and implants on them, unless it has been emagged.
Morgue Unit
Used to store corpses for autopsies. Extend the tray, wrestle a stiff on it and slide it back in. The body won't undergo decomposition so long as it's inside.
Operating Table
A table used to perform surgery on dead or living subjects. See Roboticist or Doctoring for more information.
Operating Computer
Provides oodles of medical information on whoever is laying on the adjacent operating table. It provides the same info as a fully-upgraded health analyzer, but it has some extra features:
  • A graphical representation of the contents of their bloodstream. Mouseover the colored bars to see what reagents they represent!
  • Histographs for OXY, TOX, BRUTE, and BURN. These depict how these damage types have gone up and down while on the table.
  • A "Neuron Cohesion" indicator. This basically represents how close they are to the deadly 120 brain damage threshold, in a more precise manner than the analyzer's "significant" or "severe". It's calculated as (120 - brain damage)/120 %, so lower cohesion means more brain damage.
  • Indicators for clone generation, "genetic defects" (i.e. cloner-related defects) and genetic stability, as well as, less notably, age, blood type, and blood color.

In addition, unless you have medical training, you must lay down on the operating table or be unconscious to be tracked by the computer. This means that if you are standing on an operating table and don't have that trait, self-surgery will be harder, since the machine won't tell you your vitals.

Specifically a surgery/surgical tray. Trays are often found in the Operating Theatre, and they typically have a complete suite of medical tools to be used in surgery. Unlike your run-of-the-mill table, these can be moved just by moving into them if they're unanchored. Clicking on the tray with an empty hand toggles whether it can be moved or not.
Module Rewriter
Located in Robotics. Used to convert Cyborg modules into other modules and modify the module's included toolset. Requires a human to insert a module into the rewriter, but the process can otherwise be wholly done by the cyborgs themselves. More details on modifying modules here.
Medical Computer
This ThinkDOS-based workstation runs MedTrak and provides access to all medical records as well as the virus database
Genetic Scanner
DNAConsole.png CloningMachineScannerOffV2-32x32.gif CloningMachineScannerOnV2-32x32.gif
Found in genetics. Used to conduct genetics research on test subjects - see Guide to Genetics for further information.
Gene Booth
Sells mutations/genes, if the Geneticists have the required upgrade. Click on the booth to choose a mutation, then simply walk into the booth and wait. The required amount is automatically subtracted from your account and added to genetics's Research budget; a portion also goes to one of the Geneticists' account, if they've swiped their card on the GeneTek. You can gain genes not in your genetic potential, and if you lack sufficient funds or don't have an account or ID, the booth will boot you out.
Dialysis Machine
A powerful chemical flushing machine--and without the painful downsides of calomel! When hooked up to a patient (click and drag the machine's sprite onto the patient's), this machine draws 16 units of chemicals from their bloodstream (actual blood, plus other chems), removes any chemical not on the hypospray whitelist (such as poisons), and then, if the patient has 500 units of blood or less, gives their blood back 16 units at a time (i.e. it won't cause hypertension.) When hit with an emag, the machine instead removes only chems that ARE on the whitelist, and returns any poisons back to the patient!

Besides flushing chems, this machine also has other benefits. Patients hooked up to this machine metabolize blood reagent three times faster than normal, speeding up recovery of blood lost. Being on dialysis also slows toxic damage from kidney and liver failure.

Medical Apparel


Contains a variety of medical clothing and equipment for Medical Doctors, Geneticists, Roboticists, and other medical staff. This requires the Medical access level. Standard medical uniforms and accessories are free, while headsets and PDAs are available at a price.

NanoMed Plus


By default, the NanoMed Plus is accessible by anyone with Medical Equipment clearance and can be found throughout Medbay and in the Medical Booths (if applicable). It offers a wide selection of medicines, mostly in bottle form, i.e. you'll need to transfer them to a syringe or hypospray before you can administer them. It is also a reliable source of health analyzer upgrades and dispenses refill packs for auto-menders. Hacking it unlocks some non-medical chems, including pancuronium, a potent knockout chem, and sulfonal, a combination poison and knockout drug.

Public MiniMed


This public vending machine sells basic medical supplies. A few of these can be found all across the station, and they can be easily recognized by their wide range of darkly comedic slogans, such as "Now 80% sterilized!". Despite what the line "ERROR: Item "Stimpack" not found!" implies, these things never sell stimpacks of any kind. Likewise with "Please contact your insurance provider for details on reduced payment options for this machine!": it is not possible to get discounted prices in-game. The full list of lines, including ones already mentioned, is shown below:

  • "Address all complaints about Public MiniMed services to FILE NOT FOUND for a swift response."
  • "Are you or a loved one currently dying? Consider Discount Dan's burial solutions!"
  • "ERROR: Item "Stimpack" not found!"
  • "ERROR: OUT OF COFFEE!" (appears only if it has no Robust Coffee when hacked)
  • "It pays to be safe!"
  • "It's safest to pay!"
  • "Now 80% sterilized!"
  • "Please contact your insurance provider for details on reduced payment options for this machine!"
  • "Please, be considerate! Do not block access to the machine with your bloodied carcass."
  • "There is a 1000 credit fine for bleeding on this machine."
  • "We've gone green! Now using 100% recycled materials!"

When hacked, it offers more unusual fare, alongside some Robust Coffee for weary souls. If it's screaming "ERROR: OUT OF COFFEE!" though, that means hacking it won't unlock any of said coffee.

Pathology Equipment

FoodPancakes.png This page is about discontinued content.
The following information is not current. It is kept for historical purposes.
Pathology has been removed from the game. This section is kept for reference purposes until it can be moved to a dedicated page!
Item Image Description
Blood Slide
Draw blood from a person, then inject it into the slide. The first step in researching diseases. Blood slides are disposable and can't be cleaned.
Petri Dish
Used to cultivate pathogens. Maximum capacity is 40 units of nutrients.
Totally Safe(tm) Pathogen Sample
Really is safe, though not quite a pathogen sample, since it contains just 5 units of plain water.
Vials, growth media and other supplies needed for pathology research are available here.
Isolates pathogen samples from an blood slide. If there are multiple pathogens in a blood slide, it lets you pick which one to isolate. You may need this in order to start proper cure manufacturing.
Clean a Petri dish for reuse, which is required to be used in the centrifuge as a receptacle, and clears away any chemicals on it. Also accepts other glassware, e.g. beakers, drinking glasses, and removes all chems from them too. Can clean only one piece of glassware at a time.
Essential for determining a pathogen's symptoms and suppressant. See Guide to Pathology for more info on how this is done.
A machine specialized in making cures for pathogens, as well as vaccines, see Guide to Pathology for instructions. It can also create new pathogen samples, though if you're getting a message asking you to "contact a network administrator", that means all player-accessible sources of pathogens are currently disabled. The Synth-O-Matic requires certain modules to perform certain functions; luckily it spawns with all the modules in the game, so in practice it's nothing to really worry about.
Synth-O-Matic Module
Synth-O-Matic modules grant a Synth-O-Matic various capabilities, like making vaccines, automatically identifying anti-agent and suppressant, and just being able to cure certain microbodies in the first place. Once upon a time, Synth-O-Matic came with only a basic set of these, but now if you pop one open, it has all the possible modules.
Pathogen Manipulator
Analyzes a pathogen's stats and can be used to create new symptoms and splice them into other ones. However, you can only add vials to the machine. To actually work with the pathogen, you need to use the accompanying Pathology Research computer to control the manipulator.
Pathology Research
You use this rather confusingly named computer to control the pathogen manipulator, while the manipulator itself does the dirty work.
Grows microbes, not chicken eggs. When given a Petri dish containing pathogen, the machine automatically grows more of it every so often. It does not need to be supplied nutrients, but it cannot cultivate Great Mutatis cells, and if there multiple different pathogens, it picks only one. Using a vial on the machine will fill the vial with 2 units of pathogen from the dish. You can Examine the machine to determine how much pathogen reagent it has.
