What Are Vivarium Rooms? The word "vivarium" comes from the Latin words for "place for" and "living things." In short,. That can be anything from a tarantula cage in a teenager's room, to Biosphere 2. In the scientific community, vivarium rooms are also known as animal research facilities, and they are used to keep animals and/or plants under conditions simulating a natural environment. These types of microecosystems are essential for observing life under certain conditions, or safely housing animals who are being used for research purposes. Things to Consider When Purchasing a Vivarium Room in Vancouver, BC There are numerous environmental controls required for a well-functioning vivarium room. For your needs in Vancouver, BC, you'll need to ensure the controlled environment room is capable of meeting them all: 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 other life forms thrive in colder, darker environments. Simulating the right light can take different types of bulbs, and your vivarium room may need a controller to replicate light and dark periods. 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 an HVAC system or special lamps. Ventilation — Proper air flow is essential for circulating air, preventing mold growth, stopping the proliferation of harmful bacteria, and stabilizing the air flow between the holding room and vivarium room. There are numerous exhaust fan options available, depending on what works best for you. A life form's physical environment plays a vital role in their well-being. You require an impeccable vivarium room to guarantee not just the health of your specimens, but the validity of your Vancouver, BC research.
