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 tarantula cage in a kid's room, to the dolphinarium at Sea World.

In the scientific community, 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 types of microecosystems are essential for observing organisms in a specific environment, or safely housing animals who are being tested for research purposes.

Important Aspects of Vivarium Rooms in Raleigh, NC

There are a variety of environmental controls needed for a well-functioning vivarium room. For your research purposes in Raleigh, NC, you'll need to ensure your controlled environment room can properly sustain:

  • Lighting — Different organisms need different levels and types of lighting that meet their adapted needs. Ectotherms warm themselves with outside heat like the sun, while some plants do best in the shade. Different bulbs offer different levels and types of heat and light, and your vivarium room may need a regulator to replicate light and dark periods.
  • Temperature and Humidity — Similarly, different organisms can only survive with a temperature and humidity similar to their natural habitat. Heat can be sourced from your facility's system or special lamps.
  • Air Quality — Ventilation is essential for circulating air, preventing mold growth, preventing the proliferation of damaging bacteria, and balancing the air flow between the holding room and vivarium room. There are a variety of exhaust fan options we can fit for your room, depending on your needs.

An organism's physical environment is as important as anything to keeping them healthy. You require a precise vivarium room to ensure not just the health of your specimens, but the integrity of your Raleigh, NC research.
