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 anything from a tarantula cage in a teenager's room, to the penguinarium at the Prague Zoo.

For research purposes, vivarium rooms can also be called animal research facilities, and their purpose is to keep animals and/or plants under conditions simulating a natural environment. These types of microecosystems are a fundamental aspect of observing plants or animals under certain conditions, or humanely housing animals who are being tested for research purposes.

Things to Keep in Mind When Purchasing a Vivarium Room in Minneapolis, MN

There are numerous environmental controls needed for a well-functioning vivarium room. For your facility in Minneapolis, MN, you need to know that your controlled environment room can properly sustain:

  • Lighting — Different plants and animals need different levels and types of lighting that meet their adapted needs. Reptiles, amphibians, and other animals warm themselves with external heat sources like the sun, while other life forms rarely see the light of day. Simulating the right light can take different types of bulbs, and we can also build in a controller to simulate night and day.
  • Temperature and Humidity — Similarly, different organisms can only survive with a temperature and humidity similar to their natural habitat. Heat can be provided through an HVAC system or special lamps.
  • Air Flow — Proper air flow is crucial for circulating air, staving off mold growth, reducing the proliferation of harmful bacteria, and equalizing the ventilation between the holding room and vivarium room. There are numerous exhaust fan options we can fit for your room, depending on the temperature and humidity of the room in question.

An animal or plant's physical environment plays a fundamental role in their health. You require an impeccable vivarium room to guarantee the integrity of both your specimens and research in Minneapolis, MN.
