What Are Vivarium Rooms?

The term "vivarium" comes from the Latin words for "place for" and "living things." In short,. That can include anything from a heated glass box for a reptile in a kid's room, to the dolphinarium at Sea World.

For research purposes, vivarium rooms are also known as animal research facilities, and their purpose is to house animals and/or plants under conditions simulating a natural environment. These microecosystems are crucial for observing plants or animals under certain conditions, or humanely housing experimental animals.

Aspects to Think About When Purchasing a Vivarium Room in Rochester, NY

There are a variety of environmental controls needed to keep a vivarium room functioning properly. For your research purposes in Rochester, NY, you need to know that your controlled environment room can properly sustain:

  • Lighting — Different organisms need different levels and types of lighting that meet their adapted needs. "Cold-blooded" animals warm themselves with external heat like the sun, while some plants do best in the shade. Simulating the right light can take different types of bulbs, and we can also offer a regulator to simulate night and day.
  • 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 special lamps.
  • Air Quality — Proper air flow is crucial for circulating air, staving off mold build-up, reducing the proliferation of harmful bacteria, and balancing the ventilation between the vivarium room and other areas of your facility. There are a variety of exhaust fan options available, depending on what works best for you.

An animal or plant's physical environment is as important as anything to keeping them healthy. You require a precise vivarium room to ensure the integrity of both your specimens and research in Rochester, NY.
