Units Proven to Remove Airborne Microorganisms, Including Coronavirus
For Immediate Release
[MIAMISBURG, OHIO] — U.S.-based Aerobiotix, an innovative clinical manufacturing company, is on a mission to improve the air quality in operating rooms. Thanks to a new distribution agreement with Cardinal Health, its technology will soon be available in more hospitals and surgical centers to help reduce the risk of infection and contamination of infectious aerosols including SARS-COV-2.
Cardinal Health recently added Aerobiotix as a preferred supplier in their Performance Plus™ program. This program offers hospitals efficiency and value when selecting products, and Aerobiotix is the preferred supplier in the air quality product category.
“Having an innovative product in our portfolio that is proven to improve the air quality in operating rooms and surgical centers is important to us,” said Marc DeLorenzo, SVP Strategic Sourcing for Cardinal Health. “Collaborating with Aerobiotix allows us to provide a product that can benefit both the healthcare worker and their patients.”
Cardinal Health serves nearly 90% of U.S. hospitals, positioning Aerobiotix’s clinically-proven non-turbulent ultraclean air system, Illuvia®, to have an immediate impact by reducing the risk of contamination and infection in operating rooms. Illuvia® is the only technology in this space that has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to eliminate airborne viruses.
Benefits of Illuvia®:
● Eliminates airborne microorganisms, including SARS-COV-2
● Improves air quality for frontline healthcare workers

Aerobiotix technology is currently being used by over 100 facilities worldwide and will continue improving patient and staff safety as a result of this new collaboration with Cardinal Health. This will be one of the first products offered in this program with plans to release additional technology impacting other healthcare environments.
“We are thrilled to announce our marketing and distribution relationship with Cardinal Health providing transformational air quality technology to meet rapidly growing environmental needs in healthcare,” said David Kirschman, MD, Aerobiotix founder and CEO. “This relationship will significantly expand our sales and marketing reach and will drive further penetration of Aerobiotix products, including the intraoperative Illuvia® system. The mutual commitment of our organizations to improve patient and staff safety, reduce hospital-acquired infections and curtail unnecessary costs underscores the synergies of this partnership.”
