Plasma treatment of surfaces as a sterilisation or decontamination method is a promising approach to overcome limitations of conventional techniques. The precise characterisation of the employed plasma discharges, the application of sensitive surface diagnostic methods and targeted experiments to separate the effects of different agents, have led to rapid(More)
Successful and reliable sterilisation of medical instruments is basic requirement in every hospital and in every medical practice. Conventional sterilisation methods are often reaching their limits since new materials used in modern medical technology such as plastics cannot withstand the heat during the autoclaving or their surface is strongly modified and(More)
Immune-stimulating microbiological components like lipopolysaccharide (LPS), lipoteichoic acid (LTA) and zymosan bound onto surfaces lead to severe problems when brought in contact with the organism via surgical instruments or implants. We have shown, in recent studies, that it is possible to detect different immune-stimulating components directly on the(More)
The influence of several sterilization processes (autoclaving, gamma-ray irradiation, ethylene oxide exposure and Ar/H(2) low pressure plasma treatment) on the surface chemistry and the bioadhesive properties of thin films (thickness approximately 20 nm) of plasma-polymerized diethylene glycol dimethyl ether has been studied. X-ray photoelectron(More)
