In the recent past, the antimicrobial applicability of tissue tolerable plasma (TTP) has been examined, and is increasing in importance. Many different plasma sources can be used medically. In order to obtain reliable test results by using plasma sources, it is essential not only to assess physical parameters but also to screen a use-oriented application of plasma sources. It is necessary to both determine the biological efficacy and establish uniform coverage of the treated surfaces....
