Frequently asked questions
"Plasma" is an ionized gas - one of the four fundamental states of matter, the others being solid, liquid, and gas.

No, absolutely not. That would be as absurd as to argue that all liquids in general are the same (such as milk, water, rum, petrol etc). Our scientists have researched a variety of plasmas in more than 500 publications over the past 40 years. Even CAP (cold atmospheric plasmas) - as a subsection in the field of plasma physics – can be found in many different forms with a diversity of effects.
Yes - to a limited extent plasma can be optimized, e.g. for bactericidal efficiency, wound healing, skin disorders, odour reduction, etc.
Knowledge is the key - Based on our extensive experience (more than 50 scientific publications within the field of plasma medicine) we design our laboratory models and thoroughly test these both physically and chemically. Next, we compare our results with numerical plasma chemical simulations in order to then optimize the design. As a result – depending on the application purpose - microbiological, cell biological and ex vivo skin or mucosa tests will be conducted. After receiving clearance clinical trials will be carried out. The whole process may take up to 10 years.
We can’t tell. We definitely checking with the producers directly. Reputable companies should have documented their own research efforts according to the Medical Devices Act.
The existing terraplasma technology has been tested in every possible way and found to be safe.

The terraplasma technology employs the plasma produced electrons. These interact with and destroy malodour molecules. Conventional technologies rely on oxidation. The new terraplasma technology allows much more compact units.
