Objectives of the development work in IP4Plasma can be divided into two categories:

  1. Production technology level
    • Demonstration of the successful transfer of patent knowledge in the area of the atmospheric pressure plasma processes to commercial production
  2. Product level
    • Development of advanced medical diagnostic products including a sensitive, quick and cheap tuberculosis and HIV test
    • Development of advanced wound care products

Advanced wound dressings

Both whole-area and area-selective treatment with and without deposition of coatings will all be part of the IP4Plasma project development work to provide innovative technology for the industrial production of advanced medical consumable products. These include:

  1. New types of wound dressing
    • improved draining properties
    • capabilities to control moisture or pH values within the wound
    • protection of the wound from infection
    • reduced production cost

These three medical applications present demonstrators to show the capabilities of the ambient pressure plasma surface treatment technology in the resource and cost-efficient as well as environmentally-friendly manufacture of high-tech products.
