“As I travel to IVF labs throughout the world, I visit with physicians and lab directors
that are realizing pregnancy rates in the 65% range in young patients…
all of them understand the absolute importance of purity in their lab air”…..
The purity of ambient air is a process that many industries throughout the world continue to focus on improving. Much of the research and development is centered on removing both dry and liquid particles. In the industrial sector continued improvements have been made to comply with EPA regulations, and reduce particulates to improve general working conditions.
The Destruction of Microbes and VOCs
In IVF labs, physicians’ offices, hospitals, and clinics, it is well documented that ambient air carries harmful VOCs (volatile organic compounds). Styrenes, formaldehydes, glutealdehydes, toluene, as well as microbes (bacteria, viruses, mold and fungi), are all present in our laboratories. Perfumes, lipstick, deodorants, as well as ‘any smell’ from the outside environment are potential molecules that deter the development of embryos. At a molecular level these compounds are carried in the circulated air.
In IVF labs there is only one way to solve this issue. That is to destroy the harmful molecules. There is no filter that destroys molecular structures. HEPA and activated charcoal filters, while effective, destroy nothing. Most molecules are not filtered out of the atmosphere, and yet it is the molecule that in fact deters embryo growth.
The recognized technology that does destroy VOCs and microbes is photocatalytic oxidation (PCO). TiO2 energized by 257.3 nm UVC light activates the photocatalytic oxidation action, creating free radicals that in turn destroy both molecules and cellular structure.
EPA and activated Charcoal filters, while effective, destroy nothing. ZANDAIR™ products have the recognized technology that does destroy harmful molecules. That technology is known as Photocatalytic Oxidation. (PCO) At Zandair™, quality air is our specialty; we clean air down to the last molecule.
