Abstract

Plasma activated water (PAW) is a new approach to bacterial inactivation while ensuring safety and maintaining the properties of the material sterilized. Reported research imply that PAW has been effective for inactivation of bacteria. In this paper, plasma treatment using atmospheric pressure plasma was demonstrated. Physicochemical properties such as pH, temperature, ORP, and nitrite concentration were assessed. The results suggest that plasma treatment causes acidification on water and generate reactive species, creating an environment suitable for killing bacteria. Therefore, plasma activated water is an assuring method for medical devices sterilization.
