What is a Vivarium Room?

Latin for "place of life," a vivarium is an enclosed area where animals and/or plants can live in conditions similar to their natural habitat. That can be a range of functions and sizes, from a small aquarium in a teenager's room, to the dolphinarium at Sea World.

For research purposes, vivarium rooms are also known 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 animals who are being used for research purposes.

Important Environmental Controls in Vivarium Rooms in Kansas City, MO

There are a variety of environmental controls required for a well-functioning vivarium room. For your research purposes in Kansas City, MO, you need to know that the controlled environment room is capable of meeting them all:

  • Lighting — Different organisms need different levels and types of lighting that meet their adapted needs. "Cold-blooded" animals warm themselves with outside heat like the sun, while other animals rarely see the light of day. Different bulbs offer different levels and types of heat and light, and your vivarium room may need a regulator to simulate light and dark periods.
  • Temperature and Humidity — Similarly, different life forms can only survive with a temperature and humidity similar to their natural habitat. Heat can be sourced from your facility's system or special lamps.
  • Air Flow — Ventilation is imperative for circulating air, stopping mold accumulation, stopping the growth of damaging bacteria, and equalizing the ventilation between the vivarium room and other areas of your facility. There are a variety of exhaust fan options available, depending on your needs.

An animal or plant'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 Kansas City, MO.
