What is a Vivarium Room?

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 kid's desk, to Biosphere 2.

In the scientific community, vivarium rooms are also referred to as animal research facilities, and their purpose is to store 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 animals who are being used for research purposes.

Important Environmental Controls in Vivarium Rooms in Toronto, ON

There are several environmental controls required to keep a vivarium room functioning properly. For your needs in Toronto, ON, you'll need to ensure the controlled environment room can properly sustain:

  • Light — Different life forms need different levels and types of lighting that meet their adapted needs. "Cold-blooded" animals 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 we can also build in a regulator to replicate night and day.
  • Temperature and Humidity — In a similar vein, different organisms can only survive with a temperature and humidity similar to their natural habitat. Heat can be sourced from a building's system or special lamps.
  • Air Quality — Ventilation is crucial for circulating air, staving off mold build-up, reducing the growth 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 habitat plays a fundamental role in their well-being. You need an impeccable vivarium room to guarantee the integrity of both your specimens and research in Toronto, ON.
