We've moved! Adtec Europe now in Twickenham

Ever since Adtec Plasma Technology's European subsidiary opened way back in 2000, Adtec Europe was based in the West London borough of Hounslow.

After 21 years of fantastic growth and development, we have moved to a brand new home in Twickenham! Only a few miles up the road, Twickenham is a beautiful, village-like suburb of London. Right on the Thames, Twickenham boasts numerous cafes, restaurants, pubs and bars, with a bustling high street - and of course, Twickenham Stadium, home of English Rugby!

Only a short train ride from Central London, being on the edge of the city means we can have a large new workshop for our Engineering and Technical Support teams. In the coming weeks, a brand new mezzanine office level will be added. (Pictures to follow!)

We are extremely grateful to all our to all our customers and suppliers for your continued support - thank you!

Adtec's home of 21 years in Hounslow

Adtec colleagues at Cranfield University publish paper in American Institute of Physics

Adtec is very proud to announce that our colleagues at Cranfield University have published their paper "Cleaning Concentrating Solar Power Mirrors Without Water" in the AIP.

Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) is a method of electricity generation that utilises vast arrays of mirrors to reflect sunlight to a focal point, superheating a special liquid to produce steam. Due to the typically arid desert locations of these plants, the mirrors become readily soiled with sand and dirt. Plasma offers a novel, innovative, and water-free solution to cleaning them.

This paper provides a fantastic introduction to the research, and offers fascinating characterisation of the Air Plasma generated by our Dielectric Barrier Discharge technology.

Congratulations to all involved!

Dedicated Adtec RF and Cold Plasma News

Hello and welcome!

As part of our brand new website, we are excited to launch a fresh news feed, dedicated to our RF and Cold Plasma activities.

Here, we will discuss products, innovations, applications and publications - we have a lot in the pipeline for 2021, and we can't wait to share it all with you!

Our medical division, Adtec Healthcare, can now be found here. You can still find all the old posts in the archives of our news section.

Happy New Year from all of us here at Adtec,

See you soon!


Update to clinical section on our website

 

We have recently updated the clinical section of our website to illustrate the proven antibacterial efficacy of the Adtec SteriPlas: http://adtecplasma.com/clinical.html

 

Chronic and complex wounds that are often stalled by biofilm such as diabetic foot ulcers may find difficulty to heal using conventional treatment therapies. This also applies to deep surgical site infections in cardiac patients where the morbidity rate is usually high. Using our medical device to treat these complex conditions has shown to offer promising hope leading to full healing, even if biofilm has persisted to deteriorate the wound before. Patients have been saved from amputations and given a better Quality of Life.

 

Other than diabetic foot ulcers and surgical site infections, we have collected strong clinical efficacy for the treatment of dermatology skin conditions. We encourage you to contact us at info@adtec.eu.com to learn about the myriad of benefits that our leading cold plasma medical device can offer your patients.


Two new publications for our cold plasma treating surgical site infections

Congratulations to Dr Heinrich Rotering for two publications released this year documenting the treating of surgical site infections and infected drivelines with the Adtec SteriPlas.

 

His first publication this year, “Cold atmospheric plasma and advanced negative pressure wound therapy” features the unique combination of our Adtec SteriPlas medical device with NPWT. A link to the purchase of this paper can be found in the The Journal for Cardiac, Thoracic and Vascular Surgery on Springer Link: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s00398-019-00355-0?fbclid=IwAR0O5Vh6i8QWtTuR7s8ha-10xwoJtd5n_YNY_NM5rQkDT8a8B9p9WWEKxBc

 

His second publication this year, “Preliminary Results of a New Treatment Strategy for Relapsed Left Ventricular Assist Device-Specific Infections” discusses how relapsed ventricular assist device-specific infections are associated with high morbidity, mortality, and hospital costs. A new combination of cold atmospheric plasma and special dressing technique with negative pressure wound therapy with an additional underlay of carbon cloth and hypochlorite rinsing solutions has been developed and reported in his study.

Dr Rotering has already demonstrated the proven antibacterial efficacy of the Adtec SteriPlas for the treatment of deep surgical site infections and infected drivelines in previous conference presentations, and these papers further demonstrate the accelerated healing potential with the unique combination of the two treatment therapies.

 

We encourage you to read these publications to learn the benefits of the Adtec SteriPlas for the treatment of complicated and stalled wounds and surgical site infections.


Medical conferences postponed for 2020 due to COVID restrictions

With the ongoing COVID-19 lockdown, many medical conferences that we would usually exhibit have been postponed. This year’s conferences include the Malvern Diabetic Foot conference which is now postponed to 2021, the EWMA conference which is now postponed to 18th-20th November and the DFSG conference which will now be a virtual conference.

 

For customers and friends that we had already planned to meet at the conferences and can now no longer attend, we are happy to meet with you in person once the lockdown restrictions have been lifted. Until then, we are still contactable via our normal communication routes and welcome any discussions.

 

We wish everyone in our network to be safe and well.


Adtec Healthcare confirms attendance for 3rd conference in 2020

 

Adtec Healthcare looks forward to exhibiting at the Diabetic Foot Study Group (DFSG) conference in Bratislava, Slovakia between 18-20 September 2020.

You can find us at booth 13 in the exhibition hall where our staff will be ready to welcome you. We will also have our flagship medical device, the Adtec SteriPlas, live on demonstration to show you how easy it is to treat diabetic foot ulcers.

EWMA

We had a great time exhibiting at the EWMA 2019 conference. We would like to congratulate Maurice Moelleken, Dr Heinrich Rotering and Dr Michael Pierides for their brilliant presentations during the conference. Their data showed the strong benefits of using the Adtec SteriPlas on chronic wounds and surgical site infections, offering an alternative to standard treatment therapies that bacteria may pose a resistance to.

The Adtec SteriPlas has proven antibacterial efficacy backed by a wide clinical bibliography and no side effects reported making it safe, painless and effective for the treatment of infected wounds stalled by bacteria.
