What Are Vivarium Rooms?

The term "vivarium" comes from the Latin words for "place for" and "living things." In short,. That can be anything from a tarantula cage on a kid's desk, to the penguinarium at the Prague Zoo.

In the scientific community, vivarium rooms are also referred to as animal research facilities, and they are used to store animals and/or plants under conditions simulating a natural environment. These microecosystems are crucial for observing plants or animals under certain conditions, or humanely housing experimental animals.

Important Aspects of Vivarium Rooms in Fort Collins, CO

There are a variety of environmental controls needed to keep a vivarium room functioning properly. For your research purposes in Fort Collins, CO, you'll need to ensure the controlled environment room can properly sustain:

  • Lighting — Different organisms have adapted to different types of lighting and heating. Ectotherms need sunlight to warm themselves, 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 simulate 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 thrive. Heat can be sourced from an HVAC system or heat lamps.
  • Air Quality — Proper air flow is essential for circulating air, preventing mold accumulation, stopping the spread of damaging bacteria, and balancing the air flow between the vivarium room and other areas of your facility. There are numerous exhaust fan options available, depending on your needs.

A life form's physical environment is as important as anything to keeping them healthy. You require a precise vivarium room to guarantee the integrity of both your specimens and research in Fort Collins, CO.
