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 be a range of functions and sizes, from a tarantula cage on a teenager's desk, to the dolphinarium at Sea World.

In the scientific community, vivarium rooms can also be called animal research facilities, and they are used to house animals and/or plants under conditions simulating a natural environment. These kinds of microecosystems are a fundamental aspect of observing plants or animals under certain conditions, or safely housing experimental animals.

Important Environmental Controls in Vivarium Rooms in Columbus, OH

There are numerous environmental controls required to keep a vivarium room functioning properly. For your facility in Columbus, OH, you'll need to ensure the controlled environment room can properly maintain:

  • Light — Different plants and animals have adapted to different types of lighting and heating. Ectotherms need sunlight to warm themselves, while other animals rarely see the light of day. Simulating the right light can take different types of bulbs, and your vivarium room may need a controller to simulate light and dark periods.
  • Temperature and Humidity — Similarly, some animals have little tolerance for high humidity and temperature, while others need it to thrive. Heat can be sourced from an HVAC system or heat lamps.
  • Ventilation — Proper air flow is crucial for circulating air, preventing mold growth, reducing the spread of damaging bacteria, and balancing the air flow between the holding room and vivarium room. There are numerous exhaust fan options we can fit for your room, depending on what works best for you.

An animal or plant's habitat plays a vital role in their well-being. You need a precise vivarium room to guarantee not just the health of your specimens, but the integrity of your Columbus, OH research.
