PlasmaBiotics System

The unique solution for fast drying 
and active storage of endoscopes

About PlasmaBiotics

Founded in 2011 in Paris, France, PlasmaBiotics is a young and innovative company that specializes in the drying and storage of endoscopes. Its  core products are the PlasmaTYPHOON, an ultra-fast drying unit for endoscopes, and the PlasmaBAG, a single-use device for active storage with plasma. The products deliver superior and efficient performance by significantly reducing endoscope reprocessing cycle times. These innovations minimize the risk of bacterial contamination through a highly effective drying mechanism for the endoscopic channels and active storing of the endoscopes with plasma.  The PlasmaBiotics products also integrate fairly easily into most current endoscope reprocessing protocols.

In 2017, PlasmaBiotics was awarded the first prize at the Innovative Medical Companies Awards by the Alliance for Biologic and Medical Engineering. 

In 2018, PENTAX Medical, a division of the HOYA Group, acquired a controlling interest in PlasmaBiotics SAS, to strengthen the hygiene portfolio and the continued focus on reducing cross-contamination risks.

 

PlasmaBiotics System
The unique solution for fast drying
and active storage of endoscopes

Research shows that to create and maintain an endoscopy’s disinfected status, complete drying is an absolute necessity1).

As part of its Triple Aim program, PENTAX Medical continues to act for improved hygiene control and reduced infection and patient risk with the PlasmaBiotics System.

The unique and innovative combination for fast drying and active storage:

For ultra-fast and complete drying

For actively storing endoscopes

Benefits

Perfect drying

PlasmaTYPHOON is designed to reduce the risk of infection by perfectly drying the scopes. Insufficient drying can be a source for microbial contamination and the transmission of infectious material.

Controlled storage

The active storage in the PlasmaBAG allows the storage of endoscopes, preserving the disinfection level already achieved. Inadequate storage can be a source of microbial contamination and transmission.

Fully adaptable

The PlasmaBiotics System fulfills your needs by adapting to the number of scopes. It requires only limited working space and can help you to increase hospital efficiency.

Perfect drying

Reaching a perfectly dry status for endoscopes is crucial for ensuring greater hygiene and potentially lowering infection. The PlasmaTYPHOON uses an innovative approach to offer complete drying, quickly and efficiently.

One to five minutes (depending on the model of the scope) is all that is needed to completely dry an endoscope.

While high velocity flow would break fluid, making it more difficult to dry, PlasmaTYPHOON uses a combination of different level of flows (laminar and turbulent) and temperature to completely dry endoscopes.2)

“Accurate endoscope drying is crucial, whereas a humid environment facilitates microbial growth during storage. The final drying steps greatly reduce the risk of remaining pathogens.1)


PlasmaBiotics System
Controlled storage

The PlasmaBiotics System is a versatile solution with the ability to reprocess scopes efficiently at higher numbers, as well as to be transported easily and safely. 

As drying and storage is applied to the scope singularly and not as an array, it is more flexible than standard methods, such as a drying cabinet, avoiding any duplication of processing endoscopes, and thus providing  an optimized workflow.  

„The plasma contains ozone molecules which allows the endoscope to maintain its disinfected state up to 31 days 3)
