What is a Vivarium Room?

Latin for "place of life," a vivarium is an artificially built space to hold living organisms, whether they be plants or animals. That can include anything from a small aquarium on a teenager's desk, to the penguinarium at the Prague Zoo.

For research purposes, vivarium rooms can also be called animal research facilities, and their purpose is to keep animals and/or plants under conditions simulating a natural environment. These microecosystems are essential for observing life in a specific environment, or humanely housing animals who are being tested for research purposes.

Important Environmental Controls in Vivarium Rooms in Colorado Springs, CO

There are numerous environmental controls required to keep a vivarium room functioning properly. For your facility in Colorado Springs, CO, you'll need to ensure your controlled environment room is capable of meeting them all:

  • Lighting — Different life forms need different levels and types of lighting that meet their adapted needs. Reptiles, amphibians, and other animals warm themselves with outside heat like the sun, while some plants do best in the shade. Simulating the right light can take different types of bulbs, and we can also offer a controller to simulate night and day.
  • Temperature and Humidity — Similarly, different life forms have adapted to different temperature and humidity levels. Heat can be provided through a building's system or heat lamps.
  • Ventilation — Proper air flow is imperative for circulating air, staving off mold accumulation, stopping the growth of damaging bacteria, and balancing 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 what works best for you.

An organism's habitat is as important as anything to keeping them healthy. You require a precise vivarium room to ensure not just the health of your specimens, but the validity of your Colorado Springs, CO research.
