The Biotech Lab is a new building in Mobile Strike
It is the equivalent to the Alchemy Lab from Game of War.
The Biotech lab currently has 20 levels it can be upgraded to. In order to unlock the building you will need a Biotech Lab blueprint which can be found in selected in-game purchases. In order to upgrade the levels on the Biotech building you will need Biotech Lab Chemical Silo items which are again found in pack purchases.
At level 20 you will need Biotech Lab Centrifuge items to unlock future levels once they become available.
How the Biotech Lab works
The Biotech Lab works in a very similar way to crafting Cores. You have Test tubes which are the Core equivalent and Ingredients which are the attachment equivalent. You select one Test tube and then add up to 6 ingredients depending on the level of your Biotech Lab building.
Once you have selected the Test tube and up to 6 ingredients you manufacture to form a Serum which is the end product. This Serum can then be equipped to give you the combat stat bonuses and has a duration of 30 days.
Leveling up the Biotech Lab increases the minimum and maximum Serum range boost which results in getting better stats from a manufactured Serum.
Extra ingredient slots are available at the following levels:
- 1st ingredient slot – level 1
- 2nd ingredient slot – level 8
- 3rd ingredient slot – level 10
- 4th ingredient slot – level 12
- 5th ingredient slot – level 15
- 6th ingredient slot – level 20

Thoughts on the Biotech Lab
The Biotech Lab is an excellent way to enhance your combat stats.
Ingredients for the Biotech Lab come from pack purchases so its ideal to level the building up to at least level 15 to get 5 ingredient slots, but ideally level 20 to get 6 ingredient slots before crafting a Serum. the minimum and maximum range boosts will make a huge difference to the end results of the stats on a Serum.
The duration of a manufactured Serum is 30 days, this gives excellent value per Serum manufactured especially for players who fight on a daily basis.
The majority of the ingredients are focused on Attack and Health, with only one; the Nitroglycerin having any Troop Defense boost. It would of been nice to see a few more ingredients giving Troop Defense boosts for players who like to play Defensively/as “trap accounts”
The ingredients you select to form your Serum will depend on your play style, for example if you do a lot of base Attacking then you’ll want to use an ingredient like Manganese which gives base Troop Attack whereas if you do lots of Control point fighting you’ll want to select ingredients like the Liquid Crystal Resin for the Control Point Attack stat it gives.
