The LifeAire Difference for IVF

Why was the LifeAire System created?

LifeAire CEO & Founder, Dr. Kathryn C. Worrilow, discovered the impact of air quality on embryogenesis over a 10-year period running an IVF facility.

She then conducted a thorough search of the existing market of air purification technologies to find a solution capable of cleaning the air to acceptable levels. When her search came up empty, she decided to create a world-class solution, and thus the LifeAire System was born.

“IVF is an extraordinarily difficult process for couples–emotionally, financially, medically–and not to have control of air quality for them during this time is unacceptable.”

How does it work?

Eliminating all known airborne pathogens that can affect healthy embryogenesis, LifeAire System’s Aire~IVF® is clinically proven to significantly improve clinical outcomes. Its patented, multi-staged molecular media and UV technologies combine to neutralize up to 99.99% of biological and chemical contaminants within source and return air—in a single pass through the system.

No other system, in-room or in-duct, has the capability to continuously purify air at the levels guaranteed by LifeAire.

What are doctors saying about LifeAire?

“I realized LifeAire truly would absolutely be the best outcome we could offer our patients. The impact of the LifeAire system on our practice has given us the confidence to know that we have the best possible air in the world for our embryos. And that translates into success rates.”
– Dr. Steven Palter, Medical Director | Gold Coast IVF

Air quality is affected by surprising sources.

“About a block to the south of us a restaurant had a fire…You could see the big plumes of smoke. This is a very scary thing. An unanticipated problem that could have dramatically affected our results and yet it did not because we have this system in place. The air from the LifeAire system was completely clean and pristine.” 

– Dr. Randy Morris, Medical Director | Naperville Fertility Center

What are IVF parents-to-be saying about LifeAire?

“If anything’s going to help our chances of achieving pregnancy, we wanted it. And just knowing that we were in a lab where even the air is so pure…was just so exciting for us. Hearing the success rates of this clinic was stunning. They realized what the problem was–and they fixed it through LifeAire.”

A dramatic increase in pregnancy rates.

“Once we put in the LifeAire System we saw a dramatic increase in our pregnancy rates. When it comes to IVF you want to be able to control as many of the variables that historically have been difficult to control that are critical to outcome. With the LifeAire system we’re able to do that when it comes to air quality.”

– Dr. George Koulianas, Medical Director | The Center for Reproductive Medicine

What are IVF programs saying about LifeAire?

“Unbelievable–the difference in the pregnancy rates. And the quality of our embryos–fantastic, beautiful.”

– Suzanne Degelos, Ph.D., Laboratory Director | The Center for Reproductive Medicine

“My lead embryologist has performed IVF the same way for many years and believes that the only major change in her protocol has been the addition of the LifeAire System. The System has played a significant role in our outstanding clinical outcomes and is a major reason why we have doubled the number of patients we have treated year over year.”

– Mark Amols, MD | New Directions Fertility Centers, Gilbert, AZ

“Other than the addition of the LifeAire System to our process, we are doing nothing differently. Our single embryo transfer rates have increased from 45% to 65% across all maternal ages.”

– Dr. Abdul Munaf Sultan, MS, PG, PhD | Anova Fertility, Toronto, Canada

“LifeAire represented 10% of my overall investment into our new IVF laboratory. The 10% investment in LifeAire made the remaining 90% of the investment successful.”

– George T. Koulianos, M.D., F.A.C.O.G. | The Infirmary, Mobile, AL
