What Are Vivarium Rooms?

The word "vivarium" comes from the Latin words for "place for" and "living things." In short,. That can include a range of functions and sizes, from a small aquarium in a teenager'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 ecosystem. These microecosystems are essential for observing organisms in a specific environment, or humanely housing animals who are being used for research purposes.

Important Aspects of Vivarium Rooms in State College, PA

There are several environmental controls required for a well-functioning vivarium room. For your needs in State College, PA, you need to know that your controlled environment room is capable of meeting them all:

  • Lighting — Different organisms have adapted to different levels of light and heat. Reptiles, amphibians, and other animals warm themselves with outside heat sources like the sun, while other life forms rarely see the light of day. Simulating the right light can take different types of bulbs, and we can also build in a controller to simulate night and day.
  • Temperature and Humidity — Similarly, different life forms have adapted to different temperature and humidity levels. Heat can be sourced from a building's system or special lamps.
  • Air Flow — Ventilation is essential for circulating air, staving off mold growth, preventing the spread of harmful bacteria, and equalizing the ventilation between the holding room and vivarium room. There are numerous exhaust fan options available, depending on your needs.

An organism's physical environment is as important as anything to keeping them healthy. You require an impeccable vivarium room to guarantee the integrity of both your specimens and research in State College, PA.
