Gas Plasma has been shown to have a greater microbial load reduction than antibiotics on wounds in RCTs(1) and has efficacy against biofilms(2,3). It has proven efficacy in management of infection in surgical site infections(4,5). Gas Plasma is also a broad spectrum antimicrobial (including  multi-resistant strains) and with a physical mode of action, resistance is unlikely(6).
