Germ formation and growth of a wide variety of microorganisms correlate specifically with oxygen content and wettability of surfaces. In laboratory medicine, that makes effective pre-treatment of surfaces of non-polar plastics especially important. The plasma process offers a range of application options for creating optimal surfaces for technical processes in the lab.
By treating petri dishes with Openair® Plasma, surfaces can be hydrophilized. With the aid of the PlasmaPlus® process, an ultra-thin, glass-like nano-coating is applied.
The variable specifiability of the plasma allows for targeted, controlled composition of the surface and thus individual adjustments for tissue engineering and cultivation of cell cultures.
