What is a Vivarium Room? The term "vivarium" comes from the Latin words for "place for" and "living things." In short,. That can include anything from a small aquarium in a teenager's room, to the penguinarium at the Prague Zoo. For research purposes, vivarium rooms can also be called animal research facilities, and they are used to house animals and/or plants in a specific, controlled ecosystem. These microecosystems are essential for observing plants or animals in a specific environment, or humanely housing experimental animals. Important Aspects of Vivarium Rooms in Columbia, SC There are several environmental controls required to keep a vivarium room functioning properly. For your needs in Columbia, SC, you need to know that your controlled environment room is capable of meeting them all: Light — Different organisms need different levels and types of lighting that meet their adapted needs. Ectotherms need sunlight to keep their bodies warm, while some plants do best in the shade. Simulating the right light can take different types of bulbs, and your vivarium room may need a controller to replicate light and dark periods. Temperature and Humidity — In a similar vein, some animals have little tolerance for high humidity and temperature, while others need it to thrive. Heat can be provided through a building's system or heat lamps. Air Flow — Ventilation is essential for circulating air, staving off mold accumulation, reducing the proliferation of hazardous bacteria, and balancing 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 plays a fundamental role in their well-being. You require an impeccable vivarium room to ensure the integrity of both the organisms you're studying and your research in Columbia, SC.
