The MediPlas™ system generates a highly sterilizing gaseous medium from non-toxic, abundantly available gases to keep medical devices clean. It consists of two modules, the flow reactor, which produces the sterilizing gaseous medium, and the driver, that acts as a power supply for the reactor.
Inside the MediPlas reactor, a non-thermal cold atmospheric plasma is ignited. When the input gas is getting in contact with the plasma, it is not only ionized but also the bonds between atoms are broken. This recombination to new molecules results in a violet glow inside the reactor, and a highly reactive gas with altered chemistry flows from the outlet.
