Plasma Sterilisation

Understanding the power of plasma

Often described as the ‘fourth state of matter’ plasma is defined as an energized gas with an equal number of positively and negatively charged particles.

Plasma sterilisation was introduced in Europe in the ’90s. The original method involved the ionisation of hydrogen peroxide in a vacuum. However, cold plasma generated by plasma coils allows for the same antimicrobial effect at much shorter exposure times and without a vacuum.

 

  • Incredibly powerful and destructive physical forces relative to the size of the microorganisms
  • Components of Plasma eat away at the structure of the microorganism
  • All forces working together, at exactly the same time
