What Are Vivarium Rooms?

The term "vivarium" comes from the Latin words for "place for" and "living things." In short,. That can be anything from a tarantula cage in a kid's room, to the dolphinarium at Sea World.

In the scientific community, vivarium rooms can also be called animal research facilities, and they are used to maintain animals and/or plants under conditions simulating a natural environment. These microecosystems are a fundamental aspect of observing organisms in a specific environment, or safely housing experimental animals.

Things to Keep in Mind When Purchasing a Vivarium Room in Blacksburg, VA

There are a variety of environmental controls needed for a well-functioning vivarium room. For your needs in Blacksburg, VA, you'll need to ensure the controlled environment room is capable of meeting them all:

  • Lighting — Different organisms need different levels and types of lighting that meet their adapted needs. Reptiles, amphibians, and other animals need sunlight to keep their bodies warm, while other animals rarely see the light of day. Simulating the right light can take different types of bulbs, and your vivarium room may need a regulator to replicate light and dark periods.
  • Temperature and Humidity — Similarly, different animals and plants have adapted to different temperature and humidity levels. Heat can be provided through a building's system or heat lamps.
  • Air Quality — Ventilation is imperative for circulating air, staving off mold accumulation, reducing the growth of hazardous bacteria, and equalizing the ventilation between the holding room and vivarium room. There are a variety of exhaust fan options we can fit for your room, depending on your needs.

An animal or plant's physical environment plays a fundamental role in their well-being. You require a precise vivarium room to guarantee the integrity of both the organisms you're studying and your research in Blacksburg, VA.
