From research to application
We are constantly on the lookout for the needle in the haystack. And we manage to find it too. For our customers. For our project partners. For us.
We, the engineers and technical experts at neoplas GmbH, are going brave new ways and thinking outside of the box. We develop existing ideas that are related to plasma and manage to create broad roads that started off as narrow pathways. Using our expert knowledge as a foundation, we continuously work on projects and work together to come up with solutions. We are currently involved in various plasma projects:
Project Plasmaskop: Areas of Application and Boundaries for the Use of Microplasmas at Atmospheric Pressure in Ears, Nose, and Throat Medicine
Plasma is already being used successfully for the healing of wounds on the body surfaces of humans and animals. But, can plasma also heal inside of the body, for example within natural body cavities, such as the ear canal or the sinuses if they are infected? The Plasmaskop project therefore focuses on bacterial infections of the ears, nose and throat as possible fields of application. These cause substantial costs all over the world and prove difficult for doctors to treat. The aim of the project is to develop a miniaturised plasma source that can emit a microplasma at atmospheric pressure at the end of a flexible endoscope, for use within a patient’s body. This would mean that the plasma could be used on the precise area that is affected. neoplas GmbH’s Research & Development Department is collaborating with the Leibniz Institute for Plasma Research and Technology, the research lab of the ENT Clinic at University Medicine Griefswald and Xion GmbH on this project. It is part of the Health Research Framework Programme, as part of the health care field of action – SME-innovative: medical technology.

Growth Centre MikroLas – Collaborative Project 2: UKP-Plasma-Hybrid
Surfaces are expected to have increasingly specialised functions. These not only allow for technical advantages, but could also influence biological properties in a targeted manner. The growth centre ‘MikroLas – Surfaces shaped by photonics’ combines innovative technologies in the ultra-precision processing sector. As part of the collaborative project 2, we are developing a laser-plasma-hybrid device in collaboration with INP Greifswald, the SITEC Industrietechnologie GmbH and the S.K.M Informatik GmbH. We can use it to examine and perform various processes for functionalising surfaces. We aim for this technology to be used in the industrial sector, more precisely in medical, sensory and production technology, as well as mechanical engineering. The growth centre MikroLas is part of the “Unternehmen Region. Wachstumskerne 2017-2020 (Businesses Region. Growth Centres 2017-2020)” programme.

Developing a High-innovative Portable Cold Plasma Device for Efficient Healing of Chronic Wounds in Veterinary Medicin - the kINPen®VET
This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation Programme under grant agreement No 836169.
The veterinary sector urgently needs to revolutionize their treatment methods in order to solve the present antibiotic overconsumption and related growing resistance. This constitutes an important market opportunity for new technologies. Current non-pharmacological infection treatments such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, laser or LED, are less efficient, given their cost, unpleasant feeling, treatment-time or required area. Therefore, neoplas GmbH successfully developed kINPen®VET, a non-pharmacological, high-innovative and portable cold plasma device for efficient healing of chronic wounds in farm and pet animals. It stimulates and accelerates physiological wound healing and is highly effective against typical wound bacteria, multidrug-resistant microorganisms and fungi, obtaining antiviral, antimicrobial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory effects on the treated surface without the need of antibiotics or developing microorganism resistance. It is based on cold plasma and uses the advantages of the Plasma Effect (ionized gas, electrons and ions, as well as radicals, excited species, UV radiation and electromagnetic fields). kINPen®VET will provide a 100% safe and manoeuvrable device, leading to a more cost-effective and sustainable veterinary medical treatment. kINPen®VET’s commercialization is reachable by forming a European network of regional suppliers, representatives and costumers in each targeted country.
