What Are Vivarium Rooms?

Latin for "place of life," a vivarium is an artificially built space to hold living organisms, whether they be plants or animals. That can include a range of functions and sizes, from a small aquarium on a teenager'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 keep animals and/or plants in a specific, controlled environment. These kinds of microecosystems are crucial for observing organisms in a specific environment, or humanely housing animals who are being used for research purposes.

Aspects to Think About When Purchasing a Vivarium Room in Madison, WI

There are a variety of environmental controls required to keep a vivarium room functioning properly. For your needs in Madison, WI, you need to know that your controlled environment room is capable of meeting them all:

  • Lighting — Different life forms have grown accustomed to different levels of light and heat. "Cold-blooded" animals warm themselves with outside heat sources like the sun, 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 — Similarly, different animals and plants have adapted to different temperature and humidity levels. Heat can be sourced from a building's system or special lamps.
  • Ventilation — Proper air flow is essential for circulating air, preventing mold accumulation, preventing the spread of hazardous bacteria, and equalizing the air flow between the holding room and vivarium room. There are numerous exhaust fan options available, depending on what works best for you.

A life form's physical environment plays a fundamental role in their well-being. You require a precise vivarium room to ensure not just the health of your specimens, but the validity of your Madison, WI research.
