What Are Vivarium Rooms? 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 include a range of functions and sizes, from a small aquarium on a kid's desk, to Biosphere 2. For research purposes, vivarium rooms are also known as animal research facilities, and their purpose is to keep animals and/or plants under conditions simulating a natural environment. These microecosystems are essential for observing plants or animals in a specific environment, or humanely housing experimental animals. Important Environmental Controls in Vivarium Rooms in Oakland, CA There are numerous environmental controls needed to keep a vivarium room functioning properly. For your needs in Oakland, CA, you'll need to ensure your controlled environment room can properly sustain: Light — Different organisms need different levels and types of lighting that meet their adapted needs. Ectotherms need sunlight to warm themselves, while other animals rarely see the light of day. Different bulbs offer different levels and types of heat and light, and we can also build in a controller to simulate night and day. Temperature and Humidity — In a similar vein, some animals cannot handle high humidity and temperature, while others need it to thrive. Heat can be provided through an HVAC system or special lamps. Air Flow — Proper air flow is crucial for circulating air, stopping mold accumulation, reducing the spread of hazardous bacteria, and equalizing the ventilation between the vivarium room and other areas of your facility. There are a variety of exhaust fan options we can fit for your room, depending on the temperature and humidity of the room in question. An organism's physical environment is as important as anything to keeping them healthy. You need a precise vivarium room to ensure not just the health of your specimens, but the integrity of your Oakland, CA research.
