Abstract

Atmospheric pressure cold plasmas are used in sterilization, cutting and coagulation without damaging living tissues and cells. The preliminary studies on the production of the plasma pen which will allow cutting and coagulation at lower temperature than the conventional electrosurgery methods are presented. Intended power supply, pen design and manufacture are made. The results related to the first in vitro experiments carried out by the pen are given.
