CAS researchers developed low-temperature plasma sterilization apparatus

Apr 05, 2004     Email"> PrintText Size

    Researchers of the CAS Institute of Plasma Physics have been successful in developing China's first prototype apparatus to sterilize medical appliance in low temperature with a plasma approach, marking an important step toward their plasma sterilization studies.

    Plasma method is a future development orientation for the sterilization technology in such sectors as health, pharmaceutics, biotechnology and food. The system developed by CAS scientists could be used in room-temperature to both metal and non-metal devices with short sterilization time and low energy consumption. In addition, it could easily kill microbes inside tubing of the devices. Although the system costs about 50% lower that similar devices in the world market, tests have shown its performance is better.

CAS Institutes

There are 124 Institutions directly under the CAS by the end of 2012, with 104 research institutes, five universities & supporting organizations, 12 management organizations that consist of the headquarters and branches, and three other units. Moreover, there are 25 legal entities affiliated and 22 CAS invested holding enterprises...
