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 a range of functions and sizes, from a small aquarium 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 maintain animals and/or plants in a specific, controlled environment. These microecosystems are essential for observing plants or animals in a specific environment, or humanely housing animals who are being tested for research purposes. Things to Think About When Purchasing a Vivarium Room in San Antonio, TX There are several environmental controls needed for a well-functioning vivarium room. For your needs in San Antonio, TX, you'll need to ensure your controlled environment room is capable of meeting them all: Light — Different life forms need different levels and types of lighting that meet their adapted needs. Ectotherms need sunlight to keep their bodies warm, 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 controller to replicate light and dark periods. Temperature and Humidity — In a similar vein, some animals have little tolerance for 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 imperative for circulating air, stopping mold growth, stopping the proliferation of harmful bacteria, and balancing the ventilation between the holding room and vivarium room. There are numerous 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 an impeccable vivarium room to ensure not just the health of your specimens, but the integrity of your San Antonio, TX research.
