Development of microbicide equipment and research in pathogen inactivation by cold argon plasma

Author Affiliations


The high bactericidal effect of cold argon plasma generated by low-current spark discharge plasma jets at atmospheric pressure has been revealed. It has been found that the direct contact of low-current spark plasma jets helps perform effective inactivation of bacteria.

Key words

argon plasma, microorganisms, plasma inactivation, plasma jets, low-current spark, atmospheric pressure glow discharge
