Plasma technologies for biotechnology, ecology

Plasma treatment, modification of medical and medicinal and sanitary materials, allows to obtain access to medical and biotechnological materials and products with new and unique properties effective without the use of harmful or environmentally hazardous chemical substances and compounds.

Hygienic material after plasma modification becomes higher hygroscopic properties – high speed of moisture absorption, increased amount of absorption, moisture absorption and retention of fluids. It turns out an effective hygienic material without harmful side effects, effects on the body, the human skin. Liquids – different biological liquids, solutions, water. Plasma treatment is carried out without the use of harmful chemicals.

Plasma-chemical modification of the activation.

The nonwoven pulp left – non-woven cellulose after plasma modification. Activation. On the left – nonwoven cellulose after plasma modification. Right – the usual. nonwoven pulp. On the right – initial nonwoven cellulose.

Plasma modification.

Activation. Fibrous materials. Wool. Coat after dyeing.

The Golden Fleece. Original vs. Plasma modification. Left-normal wool after dyeing. Right – dyed wool after plasma treatment.

Dyeing is carried out under the same conditions. After plasma chemical modification of wool:

  • Wool is best painted
  • reducing the time, temperature, power consumption, no special chemical additives.
  • increased sorption properties of materials on all elements, metals, heavy metals.
  • The absorption (sorption) Gold Au (alluvial Au, scaly gold) from the solution increases 10² -10³ times.

Mg. Ca, V, Cr, Fe, Mn, Zn, Ga, Br, Rb, Y, Zr, Nb, Mo, Pd, Ag, Cs, Ba, La, Ce, Pr, Sm, Eu, Gd ,Er, Au, Pb,Th, U – Sorption of uranium and transuranic elements increases 10³ – 10⁵

After plasma modification fibrous materials obtained high filtering, sorption material for purification and collection of the various elements and compounds from solutions.

Plasma-chemical sterilization.

Plasma treatment makes it possible to carry out a complete sterilization of various sanitary, medical, biological and other materials.

The photo shows the plasma treatment of the standard test sample of bacteria “Bacillus stearothermophilus” production of North American Science Associates, Inc.

The test sample bacteria “Bacillus stearothermophilus” North American Science Associates, Inc.

Treatment of the test sample bacteria in the plasma. Gas – O₂ (oxygen). Power RF generator 400 watts. The frequency of 27 MHz.

Protocol control bacteria, spores after conventional standard chemical + heat sterilization and after the plasma sterilization treatment.

In the control sample after normal sterilization – there are a number of colonies of bacteria, spores and their development in an acceptable amount of (1,1 x 10⁵), after plasma sterilization number of bacteria on the sample = “0”. Bacteria, spores – not.

Plasma sterilization – a complete sterilization without the use of harmful chemicals with low energy costs.

Nano cellulose

In a glass with water on the left – untreated, regular Nano cellulose. In a glass with water on the right – the solution – Nano cellulose after plasma chemical modification (activation). High speed solubility. A stable homogeneous slurry solution is stored for a long time. Plasma: RF glow discharge. Nano cellulose glow – the basis of highly effective medicines.

The technology of plasma modification of nanopowders (Nano cellulose and others) – allows you to create a new class of fast-highly effective drugs, medications, gels targeted delivery.

Plasma treatment of seeds

Plasma technology seed treatment plants and special unique equipment developed by “PLASMAS”, intended for pre-processing of vegetable seeds, grain, forage crops, seeds, flowers, trees and shrubs. Plasma seed treatment (PIC) is performed under high-frequency plasma discharge under reduced pressure in a gas environment (for example – air) in a special unique plasma equipment.

  • The quality of seeds. Improving the safety of seeds and grains, provided long-term storage.
  • It increases the yield of vegetables, fodder, cereals.
  • Improve the quality and nutritional value of the crop – increases content of vitamins, proteins, micro and macro elements in the fruit and economically valuable plant organs. It reduces the rate of seeding. Reduced or even completely eliminated the use of chemicals – fungicides, herbicides, pesticides, insecticides.
  • Decorative landscape and economy. Accelerated strengthening of soil – growing grass, lawns, shrubs, trees (seed). Growing flowers with new colors and shades.
  • Medicine. Perfumery. Food processing industry. Growing and producing medicinal and aromatic plants with increased resource productivity. Cleaning (decontamination) of soils. Fast growing plants, cleaning contaminated soil.
  • Plasma seeds. vegetables, grains, flowers and industrial crops.
  • Getting high-quality, environmentally-, biologically and genetically-safe agricultural products.
  • Meeting the challenges of food security.
  • Trademarks and sign “PLASMAS.”
