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 kid's room, to the penguinarium at the Prague Zoo.

In the scientific community, vivarium rooms are also referred to as animal research facilities, and their purpose is to house animals and/or plants in a specific, controlled ecosystem. These microecosystems are a fundamental facet of observing organisms under certain conditions, or humanely housing animals who are being tested for research purposes.

Things to Think About When Purchasing a Vivarium Room in Houston, TX

There are several environmental controls necessary to keep a vivarium room functioning properly. For your facility in Houston, TX, you need to know that the controlled environment room is capable of meeting them all:

  • Lighting — Different organisms have adapted to different types of lighting and heating. Ectotherms need sunlight to warm themselves, while other life forms thrive in colder, darker environments. Different bulbs offer different levels and types of heat and light, and we can also offer a regulator to replicate night and day.
  • Temperature and Humidity — In a similar vein, different animals and plants have adapted to different temperature and humidity levels. Heat can be provided through an HVAC system or heat lamps.
  • Air Flow — Proper air flow is essential for circulating air, preventing mold growth, reducing the spread of damaging bacteria, and balancing the ventilation between the holding room and vivarium room. There are numerous exhaust fan options we can fit for your room, depending on your needs.

An organism's habitat is as important as anything to keeping them healthy. You require an impeccable vivarium room to ensure the integrity of both the organisms you're studying and your research in Houston, TX.
