Can my computer run Labster simulations?

The simulations are accessible online and require memory on your computer, so a reliable internet connection and a computer with at least the following specifications are important:

  • Processor: Dual-core 2 GHz or higher

  • RAM: 4 GB or more

  • Graphics card: Intel HD 3000 / GeForce 6800 GT / Radeon X700 or higher

  • OS: Latest version of Windows (64-bit) or Mac OS or ChromeOS

  • Supported browsers: Latest version of Firefox and Chrome

  • A stable internet connection, same internet capacity as a low-quality YouTube video (500 kbps) - To check your internet speed, please use this link.

iPad/Phone/Tablets not yet supported

Important: Labster simulations do not yet run on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. We are working on adding this in the future.

Chromebook Support

Labster’s virtual lab simulations are accessible on Chromebooks that meet the minimum specifications above.

There are Chromebooks that will present issues due to their integrated graphics card, most specifically the Lenovo E100 gen1 and gen2 (and others using the Mediatek Chipset). Playing Labster on these devices is not advisable.

Check your device: You can proceed with checking whether your device meets the minimum system requirements by running our most demanding simulation here:
If your device loads and runs this simulation, you should be able to run other Labster simulations.
