The CeraPlas technology enables solutions for virus decontamination. The basic components required for this, such as the plasma generator and control unit, are now available in an Explore Kit for developers.
The implementation of decontamination is relatively simple. A lockable volume for treatment and the plasma generator with its control unit are the basic building blocks to be able to set up a first functioning inactivation unit. To ensure operation with reproducible results, a locking mechanism that prevents premature opening is helpful. The active oxygen is either degraded by itself over an appropriate waiting period or accelerated by the use of catalysts such as activated carbon or manganese dioxide.
The new Explore Kit for testing is characterized by its user-friendly handling. In addition to the simple procedure and easy accessibility in a closed compartment, the duration, scalability and dry process are well suited for decontamination.
For a treatment volume of about 3.5 liters, a single plasma source is well suited for inactivation. A larger volume requires appropriate scaling of the plasma generators.
Through the Explore Kit, TDK can offer a quick and easy development start to interested partners who want to realize their own customized devices.
