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.
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:
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.

The IVF success rate is a key laboratory selection criterion for couples who wish to have a child. With an air handling system combining particulate filtration with chemical filtration, you maintain an environment suited to your activity. Scientific studies have shown that the implementation of such a system was associated with an improvement in the fertilisation rate, cleavage rate, blastocyst development rate, clinical pregnancy rate, implantation rate and birth rate.
