Low temperature plasma source for medical bioapplications

Technology description

The name of the technology: Low temperature plasma source for medical bioapplications
Challenge: Low temperature plasma (NTP) produces ionized air that has sterilizing effects without having an adverse effect on living tissues. Ozone is also part of the plasma. The main effect of low-temperature plasma is non-specific inhibition of pathogenic microorganisms (bacteria, fungi, yeast) and stimulation of healing. Current NTP sources for medical applications have a number of disadvantages:
  1. they are point sources (the intensity profile of ionized particles in plasma corresponds to the Gaussian profile),
  2. the presence of high voltage in the nearest application layer,
  3. c) the high cost of equipment.
Description: The atmospheric source of low-temperature plasma is intended for use in various medical applications such as disinfection, wound healing, dermatology and dentistry. The application of low-temperature plasma achieves the effect of bacterial inhibition and promotes healing.
The new technology shows a unique even distribution of intensity, which also increases the treated area. The shape adapts to the treated area while maintaining an even plasma effect and minimizing risks to the patient.

Commercial opportunity: Manufacture of medical devices for treatment of chronic wounds (diabetic foot, shin ulcers, pressure ulcers), burns and in other dermatological applications (acne, dermatitis), in surgery or dentistry.
The long-term goal of the project presupposes the introduction of a new and promising field of plasma medicine into healthcare in the Czech Republic. Plasma medicine has great potential to significantly influence the possibilities of therapy in a number of medical disciplines and, as a result, to reduce the cost of treatment, improve the prognosis of treatment and thus the quality of life of patients.
IP protection status: Protected by utility model number: CZ31034
Related patents: CZ304814, CZ306217
Development status:

Phase 3

Corresponds with TRL 5 and TRL 6

Technology validation and implementing it in real environment. Testing the technology outside of the laboratory and its adjustment to external conditions.

  • TRL 5 represents a state where the results of the real environment tests are known and there is an idea of how to deal with the problems found (if any)
  • TRL 6 is a state where a fully functional prototype already exists and is capable of fulfilling all its functions
Partnering strategy: Collaboration investment licensing
