REVOLUTIONARY

After years of development and experimentation, Dr. Clayton’s lab created a custom-engineered prototype they dubbed the “LouseBuster.” The results of this work were published in 2006 in the journal Pediatrics. This paper revealed the success of the LouseBuster device for killing head lice and their eggs. An accompanying press release by the University of Utah got attention worldwide, leading to international interest in this device, and the critical need for it.

That 2006 study as well as a 2011 published clinical study demonstrated the safety and efficacy of the AirAllé® device and treatment (see published data in the peer-reviewed Pediatrics and Journal of Medical Entomology). Subsequently, the FDA-cleared the AirAllé® for head lice treatments. Thousands of successful lice treatments are being performed each month with the AirAllé® device.

Larada Sciences was formed in 2006 to take this innovative technology to market. In 2014 Larada Sciences created the Lice Clinics of America brand.

  • 1980‘s – Early 1990’s

    Dr. Clayton successfully cultured lice on captive birds, such as common pigeons, for basic research purposes.

  • 1996

    When he moved his lab to the University of Utah, from Oxford University in England, he encountered great difficulty keeping lice alive on captive birds. He was informed that, because of Utah’s arid climate, they too had difficulty keeping insect cultures alive.

  • The Problem

    When his elementary school children contracted head lice, he thought it might be possible to control by reducing the level of humidity near the scalp. The question was how to accomplish this trick.

  • The Solution

    The culmination of years of work and prototypes, was the publication in 2006 of a paper in The Journal of Pediatrics, along with a press release by the University of Utah. This generated a feeding frenzy of worldwide media attention that validated widespread interest in such a device and the critical need for it.

  • 2010

    Received FDA clearance & CE mark.

  • 2011

    A follow-up study was published in the Journal of Medical Entomology that showed the LouseBuster (which is now the AirAllé® Lice Device) was highly effective at killing lice and eggs. Subsequently, the FDA cleared the AirAllé® for head lice treatment.

  • 2015

    In a clinical report on head lice by the American Academy of Pediatrics (Pediatrics volume 135, number 5, May 2015), the AirAllé® device was listed as the only device to kill lice and eggs through desiccation. It stated regular blow dryers should not be used for treating lice.

  • 2015

    In a survey of professional lice clinics, clinic owners reported successful treatments in a single visit over 99 percent of the time when using the AirAllé® device.

  • 2017

    Franchised in the US.

  • 2019

    Reached over 500,000 treatments.
