SteriPlas – cold argon plasma antibacterial

Adtec's SteriPlas has proven clinical efficacy in infection management of wounds, diabetic foot ulcers and surgical site infections. With a physical mode of action, can be used as a topical alternative to antibiotics to help in the fight against AMR.

Clinical Trials conducted using Adtec microwave argon plasma results include a 73.5% reduction in bacterial load with standard of care plus plasma treatment compared to a 50% reduction with standard of care alone. This represents a 47% increase in bacterial load reduction with SOC and plasma compared to SOC. All 24 patients received standard wound care to all wounds; 22 patients also received systemic antibiotics (92%).
