Combined solution provides a turnkey and cleaner cleanroom solution.
ALLENTOWN, PA and COLLEGE STATION, TX– September 26, 2017 – G-CON Manufacturing and LifeAire Systems today announced a collaboration to combine the LifeAire’s air purification technologies within G-CON cleanroom PODs for applications such as cell/tissue culture and gene and cell therapy processes which can benefit from an even higher level of air purity than typically achieved in a cleanroom environment. The collaboration brings together two industry leaders in their respective fields to provide a turnkey cleanroom and clean air solution.
LifeAire products are the only system able to provide sterile air to the life sciences and clinical environment by killing or removing airborne biological, particulate and chemical pathogens from all sources, outside and recirculated air, from the clean space, thereby removing the variability of air from all ongoing processes. LifeAire’s proven and patented multi-stage filtration systems placed within the integrated ductwork of PODs, can eliminate all toxic airborne pathogens within critical space environments in a single pass. Such proven technology provides deliverables that exceed GMP metrics, making the cleanroom, in this case PODs, cleaner.
“We are so pleased to enter into this collaboration with LifeAire whose transformational technology and products will make our cleanroom PODs an even better environment for the production of lifesaving and life-improving therapies,” said Dennis Powers, Director of Sales Engineering for G-CON Manufacturing, Inc. “The combination of G-CON’s and LifeAire’s innovative and complementary technologies once again demonstrate that, through effective collaboration, an unmet need within our industry can be addressed .”
“We are thrilled to partner with GCON in offering our transformational and proven air purification technology to their colleagues in the life sciences and biopharma industries” said Kathryn C. Worrilow, Ph.D., Founder and CEO of LifeAire Systems. “The genesis of our technology was focused on the comprehensive removal of ambient air as a process variable towards the successful development and protection of the human embryo for In Vitro Fertilization. This led to the delivery of air that exceeds GMP metrics and now this collaboration will provide access to this technology by colleagues working with all living cells.”
