It is no secret that air quality plays an important role in our health. In an indoor environment such as your home or office, exposure to chemicals, gas, and other pollutants can cause many negative health symptoms, such as headaches, fatigue, and more. However, if you have made the decision to undergo in vitro fertilization (IVF), air quality becomes even more important.
IVF is the process of combining the eggs of a female and the sperm of male together in a laboratory setting. The science behind IVF is that the sperm will fertilize the egg, resulting in a healthy embryo that can then be transferred into a woman’s uterus, resulting in pregnancy. Embryologists spend hours in the lab making sure the conditions for fertilization are perfect, ensuring the highest possible success. That is where air quality comes into play.
The Importance of Air Quality in IVF
When Carolinas Fertility Institute began designing our new, state-of-the-art lab in 2015, we knew air quality was important to protect the fragile embryos from possible contamination, such as airborne pathogens. We wanted our IVF patients to have the highest possible chance of conception, which meant keeping the air clean of impurities. After completing thorough research to find the best possible air purification system, Carolinas Fertility Institute installed the LifeAire System.
Introducing the LifeAire System
LifeAire Systems’ air purification systems remove pathogens and contaminants more effectively than any other product on the market, providing unprecedented improvement in clinical outcomes. Developed by a leading embryologist who understood that one of the greatest negative influences in the IVF laboratory environment was that of the ambient air surrounding the IVF process, LifeAire has since been improving the success rates of the labs who have implemented the system. Carolinas Fertility Institute is proud to be one of these labs and proud to announce our use of the LifeAire System.
Carolinas Fertility Institute Recognized by LifeAire
In a September 2017 press release published by LifeAire Systems, the company recognizes Carolinas Fertility Institute for our success with the system. Although LifeAire is proud to be a part of our IVF success, we are equally proud to have an air purification system that remedies up to 99.99% of airborne pathogens. Together, we are positively influencing the lives of our patients.
At Carolinas Fertility Institute, we are always searching for ways to improve IVF outcomes for our patients. LifeAire is just one example of how we are utilizing advanced technology in our practice.
