Daeschlein, Georg; Scholz, Sebastian; Ahmed, R.; Woedtke, Thomas von; Haase, H.; Niggemeier, M. et al. (2012): Skin decontamination by low-temperature atmospheric pressure plasma jet and dielectric barrier discharge plasma. In: The Journal of hospital infection 81 (3), S. 177–183. DOI: 10.1016/j.jhin.2012.02.012.

"Both the APPJ and DBD were highly effective in eradicating PF and AF from the fingertips of healthy volunteers. No plasma-resistant isolates were observed. Cold plasma appears to have potential for skin disinfection. For hand hygiene purposes, plasma exposure times would need to be reduced significantly by technical means."

(2015): Antimicrobial Efficacy of a Historical High-Frequency Plasma Apparatus in Comparison With 2 Modern, Cold Atmospheric Pressure Plasma Devices. In: Surgical innovation 22 (4), S. 394–400. DOI: 10.1177/1553350615573584.

"DBD with the largest electrode produced the largest IAs. VW showed results similar to 2 different modes of the kINPen 09. IAs of VW were enlargeable by attaching a larger electrode. Against biofilms, VW was less effective than DBD but more effective than ethanol 70% and polyhexanide."
