Protodermis labs were science facilities in Ga-Metru schools devoted to finding more efficient ways to use and purify liquid protodermis, as well as to the continuing effort to synthesize energized protodermis. Visitors touring the schools were allowed to briefly observe work in the labs through large windows but were prohibited from entering the chambers themselves. This restriction was for the safety of students and observers alike and was rigorously enforced by the Vahki.
Protodermis was piped into the lab for study and experiments.
Ga-Matoran were constantly working and inventing ways to perfect purification methods. They kept models of the best inventions in their labs for inspiration.
Each lab had a special section for potentially dangerous experiments.
