The aim of this study was to demonstrate anti-biofilm activity of argon gas plasma using CDC reactor biofilm model. ‘Bacteria protected within biofilms are up to 1,000 times more resistant to antibiotics…which severely complicates treatment options.’ (Environ Health Perspect. 2010 Jul; 118(7): A288) 

Results have concluded that argon gas plasma treatment may be an effective method of disrupting Staphylococcus aureus biofilms and therefore has the potential to remove the challenge of persistent infection within a chronic wound thus allowing the wound to heal appropriately. Infection management decreases wound care costs and improves patient standard of life.
