What Are Vivarium Rooms?

The word "vivarium" comes from the Latin words for "place for" and "living things." In short,. That can be anything from a tarantula cage on a teenager's desk, to the dolphinarium at Sea World.

For research purposes, vivarium rooms are also known as animal research facilities, and they are used to keep animals and/or plants in a specific, controlled habitat. These types of microecosystems are essential for observing life under certain conditions, or safely housing experimental animals.

Important Environmental Controls in Vivarium Rooms in Chicago, IL

There are a variety of environmental controls necessary to keep a vivarium room functioning properly. For your facility in Chicago, IL, you need to know that the controlled environment room can properly maintain:

  • Lighting — Different life forms have adapted to different types of lighting and heating. Ectotherms warm themselves with external heat sources like the sun, while other animals thrive in colder, darker environments. 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 — In a similar vein, different life forms can only survive with a temperature and humidity similar to their natural habitat. Heat can be provided through an HVAC system or heat lamps.
  • Ventilation — Proper air flow is essential for circulating air, preventing mold accumulation, reducing the spread of hazardous bacteria, and stabilizing the ventilation 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 physical environment is as important as anything to keeping them healthy. You require an impeccable vivarium room to ensure not just the health of your specimens, but the integrity of your Chicago, IL research.
