Reaching beyond the surface in plasma treatments
Low temperature atmospheric pressure plasmas have emerged in recent years as a new powerful technology for a wide range of biomedical applications. The potential therapeutic value of these plasmas has already been demonstrated for applications ranging from sterilization of medical equipment to new cancer treatments. With animal and clinical trials underway, the hopes for this new technology are high and the field is developing very rapidly.
