The Researcher's private room (研究員個室 Kenkyū-in koshitsu?)[1] is an area of the Arklay Laboratory. It is otherwise known as "Researcher's private room B".[2]


The room contains many books that are stored at the shelf. In Remake, a dirty lab coat that has no ID badge is hung up on the wall. There's a sink full with various apparatus. An X-ray photograph is displayed in front showing about skeleton structure. A refueling device for the Power area is also stored here.


Refueling device (Remake)

In the original Resident Evil, there are multiple zombies in this room. By bringing one of the MO Disks here, the second passcode used to enter the Detention chamber passage can be obtained here.

In Remake, one zombie will be faced here. In the sink near the door, the player can magnum rounds or incendiary shells of they're playing as Chris or Jill respectievly; on hard, there will be a handgun magazine. One of the passcodes for the Detention chamber passage can be obtained here using the MO Disk. After obtaining the empty capsule in the Power room 1, it can be refilled here. Be cautious though, once the capsule is filled with the fuel, the player must avoid running and shooting to prevent it from exploding, causing instant death. Get the capsule all the way back to the Power room 1. On easy, you can find an ink ribbon on a chair close to the entrance.
