What is a Vivarium Room?

Latin for "place of life," a vivarium is an enclosed area where animals and/or plants can live in conditions similar to their natural habitat. That can include anything from a tarantula cage on a kid's desk, to Biosphere 2.

In the scientific community, vivarium rooms are also known as animal research facilities, and they are used to keep animals and/or plants under conditions simulating a natural environment. These kinds of microecosystems are crucial for observing plants or animals under certain conditions, or humanely housing animals who are being used for research purposes.

Important Environmental Controls in Vivarium Rooms in Boston, MA

There are several environmental controls required to keep a vivarium room functioning properly. For your needs in Boston, MA, you'll need to ensure the controlled environment room is capable of meeting them all:

  • Light — Different plants and animals need different levels and types of lighting that meet their adapted needs. Reptiles, amphibians, and other animals warm themselves with external heat sources like the sun, while other animals thrive in colder, darker environments. Different bulbs offer different levels and types of heat and light, and we can also build in a regulator to simulate night and day.
  • Temperature and Humidity — In a similar vein, some animals cannot handle high humidity and temperature, while others need it to thrive. Heat can be provided through your facility's system or heat lamps.
  • Air Quality — Ventilation is essential for circulating air, staving off mold growth, stopping the growth of hazardous bacteria, and equalizing the ventilation between the vivarium room and other areas of your facility. There are a variety of exhaust fan options available, depending on the temperature and humidity of the room in question.

An organism's physical environment is as important as anything to keeping them healthy. You need an impeccable vivarium room to ensure the integrity of both the organisms you're studying and your research in Boston, MA.
