LifeAire Systems, a leader in air purification for healthcare, announced that the in vitro fertilization (IVF) program with the highest live-birth rate for women under 35 according to 2015 data uses LifeAire’s patented Aire~IVF® System. The top-ranked program is at the Carolinas Fertility Institute in Winston-Salem, NC. LifeAire’s Aire~IVF® System, a patented in-duct air filtration and purification system, kills or inactivates up to 99.99% of the most infectious biological and chemical contaminants in both source and return air to produce “Ultra-Pure Air.”
The innovative multi-stage air purification system of LifeAire’s Aire~IVF® System was invented by Kathryn C. Worrilow, PhD., Founder and CEO of LifeAire Systems. Dr. Worrilow has been awarded four U.S. patents covering the system, which also is protected by patents in Canada, Mexico, China, Germany, Spain, Italy, the UK, the Netherlands, and Israel. LifeAire’s air purification systems have improved clinical outcomes at IVF facilities across the United States, Canada, and China.
LifeAire Systems is an innovative healthcare technology company in Allentown, PA that discovers, develops, manufactures and commercializes revolutionary air filtration systems exclusively for the healthcare and life sciences industry. Attorney James Kozuch, resident partner of Caesar Rivise’s Allentown office, and several other attorneys in the firm’s Philadelphia office have been intellectual property counsel to Dr. Worrilow and her company since 2009, and procured the U.S. and international patents on Dr. Worrilow’s innovative air purification system, including U.S. Patent Nos. 8252099, 8252100, 9522210, and 9675725.
Other applications of Dr. Worrilow’s patented system may reduce the spread of communicable diseases such as influenza, tuberculosis, and measles. The technology may also help address the major problem of hospital acquired infections, thereby helping to protect a wide range of patients from infants in the neonatal intensive care unit, to patients in the operating room, and to the elderly in long-term care facilities.
