OneLab VR: Packing and Shipping Category B Scenario

VR Headset MetaQuest

A VR HEADSET is required to take this course

In this course, you’ll enter a virtual world and interact with your environment using a VR headset. OneLab VR was designed for the Meta Quest 2 (and above) headset. OneLab VR also supports any OpenXR-compatible headset.

Please read more about the requirements below. 


OneLab VR encompasses 12 different laboratories in a 50,000-square-foot virtual facility created for clinical and public health laboratory training. It also includes over 100 (and counting) laboratory-specific pieces of equipment. We’ve worked extensively with laboratory architects, designers, safety experts, and members of the clinical laboratory community to create this virtual training space. We’ve rigorously researched, tested, and reviewed everything from the physical size and placement of laboratory environments to simple things like the placement of fire alarms and sprinkler systems. As needs grow and we develop new training programs, we will add them to this all-encompassing virtual environment. 

OneLab VR includes several 5-10-minute virtual reality training scenarios designed to quickly familiarize learners with laboratory equipment, safety, and procedures. These training scenarios include videos, voice-overs, and animations to assist learners with training tasks.

Scenario Description

The goal for this scenario is for the learner to properly triple package the specimen and safely transport it to the Specimen Receiving area for air shipping, then apply the proper marks and labels in the proper locations to the package and seal it..

Scenario Objectives

At the end of this 5-10 minute scenario, learners should be able to:

  • Properly triple-pack the specimen
  • Properly decontaminate the secondary packaging
  • Properly mark, label, and seal the outer packaging
Virtual Reality (VR) Equipment Needed 

This VR course requires a play area of at least 3ft x 3ft, but a larger 20ft x 20ft space is ideal to make the experience feel more accurate and real. This VR course also requires a play area with 360° tracking. Currently, this course is designed to be viewed using the Meta Quest 2 headset.

OneLab VR must be installed on your Meta Quest headset to complete this scenario

Please search the Meta Quest AppLab store for “OneLab VR” and install it before continuing. If you prefer to install it via the Meta Quest app, please use the QR code provided to locate it on your mobile device.
