In the past few years, there has been a dramatic increase in super strains, bacteria, fungi and viruses that are resistant to the strongest antibiotics. The problem of the quality of disinfection of medical institutions, instruments and treated wounds has become even more urgent.
Low-temperature plasma is effective against a wide range of microorganisms, including multi-resistant MRSA microbes, noroviruses, adenoviruses, influenza viruses, and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Plasma kills 99.9% of pathogenic microorganisms, providing bactericidal, antiviral and fungicidal effects.

The technology is used both for medicinal purposes and for disinfection of premises, instruments and surfaces. Cold plasma equipment is used in dermatological, oncological, dental clinics, as well as in surgery, intensive care, cosmetology, veterinary medicine.
Low-temperature plasma technologies are used in the treatment of open fractures, necrosis, abscesses, wounds, tumors, ulcers, burns, bedsores and other tissue damage. Also, such devices are effective in the treatment of pathologies of the respiratory and ear organs, diseases of the oral cavity, dermatitis, during non-invasive operations, implantations.
Cold plasma can also be used for biofusion wounds without stitches or staples. 3,500 clinical cases worldwide have confirmed that cold plasma destroys bacteria, fungi and viruses without damaging patient tissue. This speeds up the healing process up to two times and reduces the rehabilitation period and treatment costs for both the patient and the clinic.
Over the past 20 years of studying the effects of cold plasma on biological objects, it has been established that not a single bacterium is able to develop resistance to cold plasma.
Cold plasma is a partially ionized gas that acts on tissues with several types of chemically active and neutral particles, an electric field, free electrons, ions and radicals.
How it works: ionized gas makes the cell membranes porous for microseconds, selectively penetrating into the tissue. Bipolar oxygen ions formed in cold plasma, striving for the exchange of electrons, penetrate the DNA of viruses, fungi and bacteria, destroying them.
The healing effect lies not in the plasma as such, but in a mixture consisting of free radicals of oxygen and nitrogen, electrons and other charged particles, excited atoms and molecules, an electric field, infrared and ultraviolet radiation.
It is this cocktail that increases the permeability of cell membranes, increasing the effectiveness of any drug therapy. In addition, under optimal conditions, plasma is able to selectively affect the affected skin areas, destroying pathogenic organisms.
