Which microorganisms are sensitive to plasma?



Christian Buske
Managing Director

In collaboration with project partners and customers as well as in our internal laboratory, the following bacteria, yeasts and molds were examined for damage by plasma:

  • Escherichia coli
  • Enterococcus faecium
  • Salmonella enterica
  • Serratia marcescens
  • Lactococcus lactis
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • Bacillus atrophaeus, Bacillus cereus, Bacillus pumilus, Bacillus circulans
  • Geobacillus stearothermophilus
  • Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus brasiliensis
  • Saccharomyces cerevisiae

By the plasma treatment the bacterial counts can be reduced by up to 8 log10 steps - depending on the microorganism and the process parameters.
