Novaerus exhibited for the first time at the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) congress in Barcelona earlier this month. Over 12,000 participants from 130 countries attended the 34th Annual Meeting.
We had the opportunity to present our new Defend 1050 at the event. There was a huge amount of interest from in vitro fertilization (IVF) specialists, doctors, microbiologists, surgeons and potential distributors from around the world, many of whom were hearing about the concept of plasma sterilization for the air for the first time.

Quality of air in the clinical embryology laboratory is considered critical for high IVF success rates. VOC's and particle matter can have detrimental effects on human embryos. Our Defend 1050 device has shown rapid results in VOC removal, removing 90% of toluene in a 20m3 chamber in just 6 minutes and showing a VOC Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) of 596 m3/hour. Novaerus is currently installed in a number of IVF clinics in India.
