Plasma medicine

In this field, AIP group activities deal with the development and optimization of NTP sources for pathogen decontamination and therapeutic applications. The extraordinary plasma potential is here connected to the various active agents produced and their controllability, which grant to the technology the versatility required by biological applications. In particular, the AIP group is investigating the decontamination of biological materials, industrial products, liquids and gas flows and relies on a proprietary biological laboratory (class 2) for the evaluation of plasma sources decontamination efficacy. Therapeutic applications under study are in the fields of odonto-stomatology, oncology and dermatology, with specific attention for cytotoxicity aspects and in collaboration with various groups from the medical and biological area.
