From our friends at Ben Franklin Technology Partners Northeast, reposted from this original from Made Possible in Lehigh Valley
Reproductive physiologist and embryologist, Kathryn C. Worrilow, Ph.D., noticed that the success rate of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) dropped precipitously when nearby projects such as paving streets negatively impacted the air. She determined that airborne contaminants play a major role, not only in reproductive success, but also in the rate of Hospital-Acquired Infections (HAI) within the hospital and assisted living settings.
Teaming with Allentown-based HTLyons to manufacture Aire-IVF air purification units, LifeAire now holds 26 patents globally and has deployed at more than 45 IVF programs. Clinical pregnancy rates have improved an average of 20 percentage points across all installations.
Eliminate the variable of air.
LifeAire Systems made it happen.
Lehigh Valley made it possible.
