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 teenager's desk, to the penguinarium at the Prague Zoo.

For research purposes, vivarium rooms are also known as animal research facilities, and their purpose is to store animals and/or plants in a specific, controlled ecosystem. These types of microecosystems are a fundamental facet of observing life under certain conditions, or safely housing animals who are being tested for research purposes.

Things to Keep in Mind When Getting a Vivarium Room in Seattle, WA

There are several environmental controls necessary to keep a vivarium room functioning properly. For your facility in Seattle, WA, you need to know that your controlled environment room can properly maintain:

  • Lighting — Different plants and animals have grown accustomed to different types of lighting and heating. "Cold-blooded" animals warm themselves with external heat sources like the sun, while other life forms rarely see the light of day. Different bulbs offer different levels and types of heat and light, and your vivarium room may need a controller to simulate light and dark periods.
  • Temperature and Humidity — Similarly, different life forms can only survive with a temperature and humidity similar to their natural habitat. Heat can be sourced from an HVAC system or special lamps.
  • Air Flow — Ventilation is crucial for circulating air, staving off mold accumulation, stopping the spread of hazardous bacteria, and balancing the air flow between the holding room and vivarium room. There are numerous exhaust fan options available, depending on the temperature and humidity of the room in question.

An animal or plant's habitat plays a vital role in their well-being. You require a precise vivarium room to guarantee not just the health of your specimens, but the integrity of your Seattle, WA research.
