What is a Vivarium Room?

The term "vivarium" comes from the Latin words for "place for" and "living things." In short,. That can include a range of functions and sizes, from a tarantula cage on a teenager's desk, to the penguinarium at the Prague Zoo.

For research purposes, vivarium rooms can also be called animal research facilities, and their purpose is to house animals and/or plants under conditions simulating a natural environment. These kinds of microecosystems are crucial for observing life under certain conditions, or safely housing experimental animals.

Important Aspects of Vivarium Rooms in Baltimore, MD

There are several environmental controls needed to keep a vivarium room functioning properly. For your needs in Baltimore, MD, you need to know that the controlled environment room can properly sustain:

  • Light — Different life forms have grown accustomed to different types of lighting and heating. "Cold-blooded" animals warm themselves with external heat sources like the sun, while some plants do best in the shade. Simulating the right light can take different types of bulbs, and we can also offer a controller to replicate night and day.
  • Temperature and Humidity — Similarly, different organisms can only survive with a temperature and humidity similar to their natural habitat. Heat can be sourced from your facility's system or special lamps.
  • Ventilation — Ventilation is imperative for circulating air, staving off mold growth, stopping the growth of damaging bacteria, and stabilizing the air flow between the holding room and vivarium room. There are numerous exhaust fan options available, depending on your needs.

A life form's habitat is as important as anything to keeping them healthy. You need a precise vivarium room to ensure the integrity of both the organisms you're studying and your research in Baltimore, MD.
