What is a Vivarium Room?

Latin for "place of life," a vivarium is an artificially built space to hold living organisms, whether they be plants or animals. That can include anything from a small aquarium on a teenager's desk, to Biosphere 2.

In the scientific community, vivarium rooms are also known as animal research facilities, and they are used to store animals and/or plants in a specific, controlled environment. These microecosystems are essential for observing plants or animals in a specific environment, or safely housing animals who are being used for research purposes.

Important Environmental Controls in Vivarium Rooms in Austin, TX

There are numerous environmental controls required to keep a vivarium room functioning properly. For your research purposes in Austin, TX, you'll need to ensure the controlled environment room can properly maintain:

  • Light — Different plants and animals need different levels and types of lighting that meet their adapted needs. "Cold-blooded" animals need sunlight to warm themselves, while other life forms rarely see the light of day. Different bulbs offer different levels and types of heat and light, and your vivarium room may need a controller to replicate light and dark periods.
  • Temperature and Humidity — Similarly, different life forms can only survive with a temperature and humidity similar to their natural habitat. Heat can be provided through an HVAC system or heat lamps.
  • Air Quality — Ventilation is crucial for circulating air, staving off mold accumulation, reducing the proliferation of damaging bacteria, and stabilizing the air flow between the holding room and vivarium room. There are numerous exhaust fan options we can fit for your room, depending on your needs.

An organism's habitat is as important as anything to keeping them healthy. You require a precise vivarium room to ensure not just the health of your specimens, but the integrity of your Austin, TX research.
