Plasma tegen superbacteria
Geplaatst op 26 november 2009 - 15:26
MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) and other drug-resistant bacteria could face annihilation as low-temperature plasma prototype devices have been developed to offer safe, quick, easy and unfailing bactericidal cocktails.
wo prototype devices have been developed: one for efficient disinfection of healthy skin (e.g. hands and feet) in hospitals and public spaces where bacteria can pose a lethal threat; and another to shoot bacteria-killing agents into infested chronic wounds and enable a quicker healing process.
Two papers published today, Thursday 26 November, as part of a selection of papers on Plasma Medicine in New Journal of Physics (co-owned by the Institute of Physics and German Physical Society), demonstrate how far the design of equipment to harness the bacteria-killing power of low-temperature plasma has come.

With other colleagues at the Max-Planck Institute, Morfill has examined the best way to use low-temperature plasma for cleaning open wounds. In some ways this is more difficult because ideally the plasma would not only kill bacteria but also prevent further growth of bacteria without having any negative side-effects on the living human cells.
