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 in a kid's room, to Biosphere 2.

In the scientific community, vivarium rooms are also referred to as animal research facilities, and they are used to store animals and/or plants in a specific, controlled habitat. These types of microecosystems are a fundamental aspect of observing life under certain conditions, or humanely housing animals who are being used for research purposes.

Aspects to Consider When Getting a Vivarium Room in Charleston, SC

There are several environmental controls needed to keep a vivarium room functioning properly. For your facility in Charleston, SC, you'll need to ensure the controlled environment room can properly sustain:

  • Light — Different plants and animals need different levels and types of lighting that meet their adapted needs. "Cold-blooded" animals warm themselves with external heat like the sun, 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 — In a similar vein, some animals cannot live in high humidity and temperature, while others need it to survive. Heat can be sourced from an HVAC system or special lamps.
  • Air Flow — Ventilation is imperative for circulating air, stopping mold build-up, stopping the growth of harmful bacteria, and stabilizing the ventilation between the holding room and vivarium room. There are a variety of exhaust fan options available, depending on the temperature and humidity of the room in question.

An animal or plant's physical environment is as important as anything to keeping them healthy. You require a precise vivarium room to guarantee not just the health of your specimens, but the integrity of your Charleston, SC research.
