The "Lab" was a laboratory for biological studies at the Space Science Academy on Ceres. It was where the baby was contained for study by the scientists when Samus brought it to them, having spared its life on SR388. Despite being a laboratory, it is seen as being rather small in size, with a containment tube, Bioreactor System and computers in the center of the room, and more computer monitors extending into the background. After Ridley seizes the baby from the station, Samus finds its large containment tube broken and three dead scientists on the ground. The Lab is depicted on the Super Metroid Title Screen. While the scientist bodies are still on the floor, the baby is stored in its capsule, seemingly undisturbed.
