3. Effective decontamination of soft reline-based oral cancer shutters by means of non-thermal atmospheric plasma
4. Non-equilibrium atmospheric pressure plasma technology for anti-CD 10 antibody immobilization on PLLA nanofibres

Poster presentations:
5. Study of potential cytotoxicity on eukaryotic cells associated with the use of plasma activated liquids in dental applications
6. Cold Atmospheric Plasma treatment of infected skin tissue: evaluation of sterility, viability and integrity
7. Cold Atmospheric Plasma (CAP) treatment to improve the bonding strength of adhesive-dentin interface in dental composite restoration
8. Cold atmospheric plasma treatment affects membrane markers expression in human monocytes and macrophages
9. Atmospheric non-equilibrium plasma induces apoptosis and oxidative stress pathway regulation in T-lymphoblastoid leukemia cells
10. Plasma activated water as sustainable tool to control bacterial disease severity on tomato plants
11. Single step process for the co-deposition of nanocomposite antibacterial coatings using a non-equilibrium atmospheric pressure plasma jet
12. Plasma activated water (PAW) for grapevine yellows disease management
13. A novel cold atmospheric plasma device for dental applications
14. Treatment of infected ex-vivo human skin tissue with a low power atmospheric inductively coupled plasma source optimized through design oriented simulations
15. Qualitative live/dead confocal laser analysis on the decontamination efficacy of CAP treatment on ex-vivo tooth root canals
16. Advanced investigation on the plasma-liquid interaction in a plasma jet impinging on a water surface


Prof. Colombo will also hold a lecture on “Plasma Diagnostic” for the Summer School on Plasma Medicine that will be held the days before (Septeber 1-3) the ICPM6 conference.

Prof. Colombo, Dr. Matteo Gherardi and Dr. Augusto Stancampiano participated to the Gordon Research Conference “Plasma Processing Science”

GRCThe Gordon Research Conference “Plasma Processing Science” was held at the Proctor Academy in Andover, (NH, United States) from the 24 to the 29 of July 2016.

Prof. Colombo, Dr. Matteo Gherardi and Dr. Augusto Stancampiano participated bringing our contribution:
– Atmospheric pressure non-equilibrium plasma jet for acrylic acid plasmapolymerization and co-deposition of antibacterial nanocomposite coatings (poster presentation)
– Cold Atmospheric Plasma (CAP) reatment to improve the bonding strength of adhesive-dentin interface in dental composite restoration (poster presentation)
– The impact of radiative losses and thermophoresis in process modelling for the synthesis of copper nanoparticles by RF thermal plasma (poster presentation)
