How do I poison LINC?

You need to get the tissue from the same room as you acquired the virus. Dip this into the liquid nitrogen using the tongs.

You now need to find a way to ‘feed’ LINC using the tissue.

How do I get into the storeroom in the factory?

Only robots are allowed in there.  The scanner will keep humans out.
So send Joey in there by asking him to go in for you.
Once he comes out, ask him for a report, and you should find that there’s a way of getting past the scanner.
Have him disable the alarm via the fusebox.
He won’t be able to do so until he has a new shell. You will need to get this for him.
Tell him to disable the fuse box for the alarm, and you can then enter.

How do I get out of the plant?

Platform: iOS

You can’t go out the main door — it’s being guarded.
But talk to Hobbins, and you’ll learn about the back way out.
The elevator that the transport droid uses will take you down a level, at least.
You will need to get the elevator working first.
Then you can go through the hole that the droid creates as it approaches the elevator and go down the next level.
