Safe UV and Reactive Species levels only with the Adtec SteriPlas

As a leading medical device company, the crucial balance of safety and clinical efficacy are a top priority. We are always conducting tests to demonstrate the approved safety and reliability of the Adtec SteriPlas but to also learn new ways to improve the use of cold plasma in medicine.

 

Our clinical studies already validate the safety of the Adtec SteriPlas, including its low-level UV and reactive species produced from the cold plasma. These two components are imperative for the physical destruction of bacteria, however, too much of a good thing can also be relatively damaging like that observed with cold plasma jet/pens and battery powered cold plasma devices.

 

Measured across multiple distances, the UV light produced is well below the ICNIRP limit of 30 J/m2 and the reactive species produced are well below the occupational limits set by NIOSH and UK HSE. The Adtec SteriPlas continues to be one of the only cold plasma medical devices that puts patient and user safety first with no reported side effects and promising clinical efficacy from every treatment conducted.

Adtec Healthcare prepares for exhibition in July

We are very excited to be exhibiting at the Malvern Diabetic Foot Conference between 7-9th July. This will be our first physical exhibition participation in over a year! Be sure to visit us and see our cold plasma medical device live in action, perfect for the treatment of chronic DFUs infected with biofilm.


Adtec SteriPlas for the treatment of deep sternal wound infections and infected drivelines

The Adtec SteriPlas has already been well documented for the treatment of deep sternal wound infections and infected drivelines. Separate studies from two leading hospitals in Germany (University Hospital Munster and University Hospital Heidelberg) have recorded the strong efficacy of our cold plasma treatment on these problematic conditions. Due to the original difficulty of managing these chronic infections using standard therapies along with the high rate of morbidity and mortality, it is no wonder why the Adtec SteriPlas has been chosen as the preferred treatment method.

 

You can read more about its story in the latest addition of the Chirurgische Allgemeine magazine: eSD_AdTecPlasma

 


Patient and user safety is priority with the Adtec SteriPlas

As a medical device company, we always strive to ensure the priority of patient and user safety. In comparison to battery-powered and smaller cold plasma devices which may produce unreliable and damaging levels of ozone and NOx, the Adtec SteriPlas has been carefully designed as a safe and well-balanced cold plasma medical device. It has been engineered to deliver predictable levels of cold plasma to ensure the continuity of no side effects reported, putting safety and efficacy at the top priority.

 

   


New SteriPlas version and change in device Classification

Due to our proven clinical success in treating non-healing and challenging wounds, we are proud to announce the upgrade of our medical device classification to Class IIb for the Adtec SteriPlas .

This change in medical device classification also supports its continued use for treating chronic and deep wounds and surgical site infections and for treating dermatological conditions.

We also announce the product launch of a new version of our SteriPlas Version 2 model in our Cold Plasma medical device family delivering the same performance. We are very proud of the safety of our devices with no incidents or adverse events reported in 15 years of use.


SteriPlas treatment for Acne Vulgaris

We are excited to announce the recent publication, “Cold atmospheric plasma (CAP) as a promising therapeutic option for mild to moderate acne vulgaris” which features our Adtec SteriPlas cold plasma for the treatment of acne.

 

The paper created by Dr Mariachiara Arisi from the Department of Dermatology at the University of Brescia, Italy demonstrates the antibacterial efficacy of our patented cold plasma for the treatment of acne vulgaris patients. It indicates the significant reduction of acne skin lesions in treated patients who were previously unsuccessful treated with topical drugs. Unlike topical drugs, the Adtec SteriPlas demonstrated a safe, effective, and well-tolerated treatment option with no side effects for the treatment of acne patients.

 

No adverse effects or skin reactions were reported either during the treatment nor at 3-months follow-up. Treatment was completely painless and well tolerated. Patients did not report itching or burning sensation during plasma application and in the following days.

Leading cold plasma medical device

 

The Adtec SteriPlas is the leading cold plasma medical device used to manage the infection in chronic wounds, surgical site infections and to treat dermatological conditions such as acne and actinic keratoses.

 

With our wide clinical trials and publications bibliography, we are proud to state its strong antibacterial efficacy regardless of the type of bacteria or its resistance profile. There have been no side effects reported with the use of our medical device since it is safe, painless to touch and an effective method of treating patients from conventional therapies.


Adtec Healthcare exhibiting at two leading wound conferences this year

Adtec Healthcare looks forward to exhibit at the European Wound Management Association (EWMA) conference and The Malvern Diabetic Foot Conference in May 2020. As the two conferences will be running on the same dates (13th-15th May ’20), we will have teams exhibiting at both conferences so we can meet with you at whichever conference you attend.

 

We will have our medical device live on display at both exhibitions and look forward to inviting you to our booth to give a demonstration on its ease of use to achieve remarkable results.

Randomised Controlled Clinical Trials of Adtec SteriPlas/MicroPlaSter Plasma Treatment of Wounds and Dermatological conditions over a 14 year period.

Adtec Healthcare’s plasma technology has been tested in 7 randomised controlled clinical trials with proven clinical efficacy and safety. The first participant in an RCT with our plasma technology was on 24th October 2005 - This was also the first RCT worldwide to investigate the clinical efficacy of cold plasma. We continue to be actively involved in RCTs and clinical studies with SteriPlas to produce strong clinical evidence. 

The results of these trials include wound size reduction, bigger reduction of bacterial load compared to antibiotics, treatment of AK lesions and reduction of pain with no adverse events reported.

Adtec Plasma in CSP Renewable Energy Project

 

Adtec Europe Ltd is sponsoring two post-graduate students to do research in new potential applications for plasma in collaboration with Cranfield University.

 

The focus of this research is to understand the utilisation of plasma-assisted surface conditioning of low-iron glass solar reflecting mirrors for concentrating solar thermal power applications. The research project is supervised by leading experts in this field Professor Chris Sansom and Dr Peter King of Cranfield University and Dr Adam Bennett of Cranfield Plasma Solutions.

 

CSP plants generate electricity by concentrating sun light with large arrays of mirrors which are usually located in desert regions. Consequently, the mirrors get covered in sand and dust, and require cleaning with brushes and water on a regular basis. Currently much water is used to clean the mirrors, a precious resource in arid terrains. The aim of this project is to investigate the characteristics of a novel atmospheric pressure plasma system used to condition CSP concentrating mirrors which will be capable of reducing the amount of water used in the cleaning process.

 

The Global Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) market was valued at over $3 Billion US in 2016 and is anticipated to grow by 13% by 2025. There is also a compelling business desire to undertake this project. The development of a novel atmospheric pressure plasma system will be a significant game changer in the CSP market. Such a disruptive technology is anticipated to yield significant commercial benefits.
