Impact of poor indoor air quality on IVF success

Several scientific studies have shown that poor air quality can alter the results of an IVF procedure. Some particles are particularly harmful: volatile organic compounds (VOC), aldehydes, formaldehyde, nitrogen oxide and styrene. The entire IVF procedure can be affected, from the collection of gametes to implantation and even the pregnancy rate.

To maximise the success rate of your IVF, an efficient chemical air decontamination system must be put in place.

New, stricter regulations for IVF laboratories

New, stricter regulations for IVF laboratories

Since the order issued by the French ministry of health and solidarity in June 2017, it is strongly recommended that the air quality in your IVF laboratory complies with the following criteria:

  • ISO class 8 particulate cleanliness
  • M100 microbiological cleanliness
  • Pressure differential between classified and unclassified areas
  • Filtration process making it possible to achieve the lowest possible VOC concentration.

Implement an effective air decontamination system without any work

Your IVF laboratory must be equipped with an air handling system combining HEPA filtration with specific VOC adsorption modules such as activated carbon modules.

The eCHEM VOC mobile IVF lab disinfectant unit, equipped with 3 carbon modules, was designed by airinspace to meet your needs: its targeted action helps remove VOC as well as airborne particles.

In addition, the BIOCAIR® technology provides positive pressure in your laboratory, to ensure compliance with threshold values. This modular and flexible IVF disinfectant solution is equipped with clean room partitions and is opened via a control panel. It is easily installed without any structural work and can be easily connected to our mobile air handling units.
