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 small aquarium on a kid's desk, to the dolphinarium at Sea World.

In the scientific community, vivarium rooms can also be called animal research facilities, and their purpose is to store animals and/or plants under conditions simulating a natural environment. These microecosystems are crucial for observing organisms under certain conditions, or safely housing animals who are being used for research purposes.

Aspects to Keep in Mind When Purchasing a Vivarium Room in Cambridge, MA

There are a variety of environmental controls required for a well-functioning vivarium room. For your needs in Cambridge, MA, you need to know that the controlled environment room can properly sustain:

  • Lighting — Different plants and animals need different levels and types of lighting that meet their adapted needs. Ectotherms need sunlight to keep their bodies warm, while other life forms thrive in colder, darker environments. 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 — In a similar vein, some animals cannot handle high humidity and temperature, while others need it to survive. Heat can be provided through a building's system or heat lamps.
  • Air Quality — Ventilation is essential for circulating air, staving off mold accumulation, preventing the proliferation of harmful bacteria, and balancing the air flow between the vivarium room and other areas of your facility. There are numerous exhaust fan options we can fit for your room, depending on your needs.

A life form's habitat plays a vital role in their well-being. You require an impeccable vivarium room to ensure the integrity of both your specimens and research in Cambridge, MA.
