The KLA Lab

The unthinkable has happened: Santa’s legendary magic master key has vanished into thin air!

We suspect a mischievous elf has gone rogue, and it’s up to you to don your lab coats and become super sleuths.

Unlock the secrets of forensic science as you unearth hidden clues. You’ll dive into the world of crime-solving by looking for fingerprints, analysing mysterious clothing fibres, and uncovering the secrets of ink through chromatography.

Will you accept this mission to crack the case, apprehend the elusive culprit, and save Christmas?
