To evaluate the interest of a mobile device (PLASMAIR®) intended to control aerobiocontamination in a protected sector (operating theatre).


In the presence of PLASMAIR® :

  • Reduction of non-activity bioburden rates by a coefficient of about 2.5.
  • Reduction of decontamination kinetics below 10 minutes.
  • Increased mixing rates.
  • Reduction of the impact of the number of people present in the block on the biocontamination rate.


The installation of the PLASMAIR® system has significantly improved the air treatment performance in the operating theatre.
