The Petpet Lab Ray can also be unlocked after you have access to the normal Lab Ray. The map for it is cheaper (~10k) and will have similar effects on your petpets.
Obtaining the Map Pieces
The pieces of map are normally expensive; because of this, the Trading Post is generally the best place to start. You can buy entire maps for around 1.2 million Neopoints on here, or you can get the pieces individually (this will generally save you a few points). They are also available from the auctions.
Estimated cost: ~1,000,000 nps (as of 7/14/13)
Some of the cheaper pieces are available through the Shop Wizard.
Map pieces may also be found randomly on the floor via RE's.
Another great way to get lab map pieces is through Key Quest. You can be rewarded with them, especially through gold keys, and thus have the chance to complete your map for free.
