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 anything from a heated glass box for a bearded dragon in a kid's room, to the dolphinarium at Sea World.

For research purposes, vivarium rooms are also referred to as animal research facilities, and they are used to store animals and/or plants under conditions simulating a natural environment. These types of microecosystems are a fundamental facet of observing plants or animals in a specific environment, or safely housing animals who are being used for research purposes.

Important Aspects of Vivarium Rooms in Waco, TX

There are numerous environmental controls required to keep a vivarium room functioning properly. For your research purposes in Waco, TX, you'll need to ensure the controlled environment room can properly maintain:

  • Light — Different organisms have grown accustomed to different levels of light and heat. Ectotherms warm themselves with outside heat sources like the sun, while some plants do best in the shade. Simulating the right light can take different types of bulbs, and your vivarium room may need a controller to simulate light and dark periods.
  • Temperature and Humidity — Similarly, some animals cannot handle high humidity and temperature, while others need it to thrive. Heat can be provided through your facility's system or heat lamps.
  • Ventilation — Ventilation is essential for circulating air, preventing mold build-up, preventing the growth of damaging bacteria, and stabilizing the air flow between the holding room and vivarium room. There are a variety of exhaust fan options available, depending on what works best for you.

A life form's habitat is as important as anything to keeping them healthy. You require a precise vivarium room to guarantee the integrity of both the organisms you're studying and your research in Waco, TX.
