Once built, we layer in our OnSite services to get your new vivarium research operations up and running in as little as three weeks.
At every stage of vivarium planning, design, staffing, and securing site compliance, Explora’s experienced team saves you weeks (sometimes months) of time, helping keep you on track to hit your milestones.

If you’re thinking of relocating, you should be considering real estate options 12 to 18 months prior to your move.
Vivaria are often the most expensive lab space for a biotech or pharma company to build. The specialized requirements for real estate locations, security, air circulation, lighting, sanitation, and power systems contribute to higher real estate and building costs. The equipment used in a research vivarium also requires significant upfront capital investment. Early-stage biotech companies often turn to outsourced vivarium rental or contract research options to reduce capital investment during early business growth phases.
