Not only are they achieving birth rates consistently higher than the national average, many programs protected by LifeAire Systems’ technology are achieving double digit improvements.
Lehigh Valley, PA (PRWEB) May 18, 2016
LifeAire Systems, a technology leader in air purification for healthcare, announced today that the top two In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) clinics identified as the Best IVF Programs in the United States by FertilitySuccessRates.com are protected by its technology.
The top two laboratories were Gold Coast IVF in Woodbury, NY with a 77.4% success rate and The Center for Reproductive Medicine in Mobile, AL with a 73.8% rate. These rates are 28.1 and 24.5 percentage points higher than the national average. Rankings were determined by live birth rate per transfer, as reported in the 2014 CDC Preliminary IVF Success Rate Report for women under age 35 using fresh embryos.
Noting that the technology was introduced in late 2013, Founder and CEO of LifeAire Systems, Kathryn C. Worrilow, Ph.D. said having two programs achieve the highest success rates in the nation in 2014 is remarkable.
“We continue to see impressive outcomes for laboratories using our technology,” she said “Not only are they achieving birth rates consistently higher than the national average, many of the programs protected by LifeAire Systems’ technology are achieving double digit improvements.”
LifeAire Systems’ proprietary technology for air purification provides continuous filtration and inactivation of 99.99% of biological and chemical contaminants within the air. Developed by Dr. Worrilow, an embryologist who has spent the last decade researching the critical role that air plays in In Vitro Fertilization, the technology provides the purest environment possible for successful embryogenesis.
Both programs were early adopters of the LifeAire Systems’ technology. When Gold Coast IVF constructed its state of the art IVF laboratory in 2013, its Medical Director, Dr. Steven Palter, included LifeAire Systems’s purification media as an integral part of the design.
Dr. George Koulianos, Director of The Center for Reproductive Medicine added that the impact of the technology was seen almost immediately after installation. “Once we put in a LifeAire system, we saw a dramatic increase in our center’s pregnancy rates, above and beyond where we were. We’ve exceeded our wildest expectations in terms of outcomes.”
The LifeAire Systems’ filtration method is in stark contrast to more common HEPA filtration systems that filter air but do not provide molecular destruction of biological and chemical contaminants. The LifeAire Systems’ purification process offers a continuous, dynamic kill of airborne pathogens.
