What is a Vivarium Room?

Latin for "place of life," a vivarium is an artificially built space to hold living organisms, whether they be plants or animals. That can be anything from a heated glass box for a reptile in a teenager's room, to Biosphere 2.

In the scientific community, vivarium rooms can also be called animal research facilities, and their purpose is to house animals and/or plants under conditions simulating a natural environment. These microecosystems are essential for observing organisms in a specific environment, or safely housing animals who are being used for research purposes.

Aspects to Consider When Getting a Vivarium Room in Philadelphia, PA

There are several environmental controls needed to keep a vivarium room functioning properly. For your needs in Philadelphia, PA, you need to know that your controlled environment room is capable of meeting them all:

  • Lighting — Different plants and animals need different levels and types of lighting that meet their adapted needs. Ectotherms need sunlight to keep their bodies warm, while other life forms thrive in colder, darker environments. Different bulbs offer different levels and types of heat and light, and your vivarium room may need a controller to replicate light and dark periods.
  • Temperature and Humidity — In a similar vein, different life forms have adapted to different temperature and humidity levels. Heat can be sourced from a building's system or heat lamps.
  • Ventilation — Ventilation is essential for circulating air, stopping mold accumulation, reducing the growth of hazardous bacteria, and equalizing the air flow 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 animal or plant's physical environment plays a fundamental role in their health. You need an impeccable vivarium room to ensure not just the health of your specimens, but the validity of your Philadelphia, PA research.
