Biochem is the engineering of performance-enhancing chemical serums and biological implants.

This Biochem Leveling Guide will show you the fastest and easiest way to level your Biochem Crew Skill from 1 to 500 using the least amount of materials.

The Biochem crew skill creates consumables that give stat bonuses or restore health, as well as Implants (equipped items). The consumable item types are: Stims (moderate primary stat bonuses a limited time), Adrenals (large secondary stat bonuses for 15 seconds), Medpacs (restores health to you), and Med Units (restores health to you and your companion). Implants are items you can equip in the Implant slot on your character screen and give a combination of both Primary and Secondary stat bonuses.
