What is a Vivarium Room? The word "vivarium" comes from the Latin words for "place for" and "living things." In short,. That can include anything from a small aquarium on a kid's desk, to the penguinarium at the Prague Zoo. In the scientific community, vivarium rooms can also be called animal research facilities, and they are used to store animals and/or plants under conditions simulating a natural environment. These kinds of microecosystems are a fundamental aspect of observing organisms under certain conditions, or safely housing experimental animals. Aspects to Consider When Getting a Vivarium Room in Montreal, QC There are numerous environmental controls necessary for a well-functioning vivarium room. For your facility in Montreal, QC, you'll need to ensure 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 need sunlight to keep their bodies warm, while other animals rarely see the light of day. Simulating the right light can take different types of bulbs, and your vivarium room may need a regulator to replicate light and dark periods. Temperature and Humidity — Similarly, some animals cannot handle high humidity and temperature, while others need it to thrive. Heat can be provided through an HVAC system or heat lamps. Ventilation — Ventilation is imperative for circulating air, stopping mold growth, preventing the growth of hazardous bacteria, and balancing the ventilation between the vivarium room and other areas of your facility. 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.
